Christopher L. Marshall
Dr. Christopher Marshall is the director of IACT and an expert and developer of instrumentation in the application of in-situ x-ray absorption spectroscopy (XANES and EXAFS) as well as conventional materials characterization methods to determine the structure and chemical properties (metal oxidation states) of heterogeneous catalysts. He is carrying out studies of catalyst materials properties under pretreatment and reaction conditions. He is undertaking in situ characterization of supported catalysts using synchrotron x-rays and infrared techniques. He is also involved in reactor studies to determine catalytic mechanisms.
