Christopher M Fancher

Postdoctoral Researcher

Chris Fancher is an postdoctoral researcher on the ORNL NRSF2 instrument, HFIR beam line HB2B. His current scientific interests are in the field of materials science, crystallography, and data science; in particular in developing structure-property relationships through in situ studies to determine how atoms displace in response to dynamic stresses (e.g. electric fields), and the development of novel structure analysis methods using Bayesian inference. He received his PhD in material science and engineering from the Purdue University. Prior to joining ORNL, he was a postdoctoral research associate in the Jacob Jones' research group at North Carolina State University.
