About Professor Hendon

Christopher Hendon received his undergraduate degree in 2011 from Monash University; in 2015 he was awarded his Ph.D. from the University of Bath (Aron Walsh). He spent two years as a post-doc at Massachusetts Institute of Technology with Mircea Dinca, Yogesh Surendranath, and Yuriy Román-Leshkov before joining UO in August 2017 as a computational chemist.  His research interests range from electronic structure of solid-state and non-equilibrium materials to catalysis. All of his work is performed on super computers.  His research is supported by the NSF and the University of Oregon.  His primary goal is to perform valuable computational experiments that compliment and guide experimental studies by providing atomic resolution of properties that are beyond the reach of conventional experimental chemistry.
