Chris combines an extensive research background with significant patent preparation, prosecution, and analysis knowledge. His experiences include 15 years in roles throughout the Research departments at Honeywell UOP, primarily focused on inventing, characterizing, and catalytically testing new materials and processes. Particular foci have included heterogeneous catalytic processes such as olefin oligomerization and alkylation, synthesis of inorganic materials (primarily metal oxides and zeolites), process engineering, molecular adsorption, and olefin metathesis. Chris is an inventor or co-inventor on more than 100 US and foreign patents and has coauthored over 30 peer-reviewed journal articles and a book chapter. Prior to UOP, Chris earned a Ph.D. at Northwestern University and worked in the Hard Materials Center of Excellence at Sigma-Aldrich.
