Chris Mallia

Chris MalliaGraduate Student, DMSE

Chris received his B.A. and M.A. in Physics from Hunter College, CUNY in 2019. His research as both an undergraduate and master’s student was done on energy storage materials using solid-state NMR techniques under Professor Steven Greenbaum. He focused on characterizing the dynamics of materials for electrolyte applications using field cycling NMR and high-pressure diffusion measurements. In 2017, he participated in a fellowship at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) to model the process of spark plasma sintering for solid ceramic electrolyte applications. In his free time he enjoys nature through hiking, and spending time with animals. He is supported through a National Defense Science and Engineering (NDSEG) fellowship since 2020.
