Chris Seong 


Graduate Student (2020)


Hi! I'm Chris. I'm an international student from New Zealand. The first time I got the full force of Minnesota winter was in my undergrad in St. Olaf College, where I worked under Dr. Elodie Marlier on coordination chemistry. In terms of hobbies I enjoy cooking, gaming, and making music in my spare time. I also beatbox, and was involved in an acapella group in my undergrad.
