Christine was born and grew up in the beautiful island of Barbados. She came to the US for college and successfully completed her chemical engineering degree at the Florida Institute of Technology in Melbourne Fl where she graduated summa cum laude; throughout her undergraduate career she also held a number of leadership positions in various organizations. As a next step, she decided to go directly into a Ph.D. program at the Georgia Institute of Technology driven by the desire to broaden her chemical engineering knowledge and to hone her research skills. Her current research focus in the group is on the catalytic applications of metal organic frameworks (MOFs).
