Christopher was born in Sudbury, ON, Canada in 1985. In 2008, Chris got his B.Sc. in Biochemistry under the supervision of Dr. M’hamed Chahma at Laurentian University while working on the synthesis and characterization of nucleobase functionalized polythiophenes. He continued his studies in the same group and in 2010 obtained a M.Sc. in Chemical Science for his work on the synthesis and characterization of amino acid functionalized oligo/polythiophenes. Since June 2011 Chris is part of our group as a Ph.D. student exploring the synthesis and catalytic activity of metallic and bi-metallic nanoparticles supported within mesoporous materials.
