Read an article at space.com profiling Chris Glein’s research:
Chris received a BS in Chemistry from the University of Washington in 2006, and a PhD in Geological Sciences from Arizona State University in 2012. He was previously a McClintock fellow in the Geophysical Laboratory at the Carnegie Institution of Washington. His research interests include mechanisms of organic chemical reactions in hydrothermal systems, chemistry leading to the origin of life, and past and present geochemical processes on icy moons. Presently, Chris is studying processes of abiotic organic synthesis inside the Earth, which may provide clues to possible water-rock-organic-microbe interactions on other worlds.
