Kevin Tran

PhD Student (2021)

As a first-year PhD student with starry-eyes, I hope to combine process systems engineering, heterogeneous catalysis, density-functional theory, and machine-learning tools to design catalysts for various applications, including solar fuel generation.

But more importantly, I enjoy being with family, playing with my baby nieces, shooting pool, playing ultimate, and doing yoga.
