Chris has been an associate editor of JM3 since its inauguration. He received bachelor of science degrees in physics, chemistry, electrical engineering, and chemical engineering from Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology in 1982, a master of science degree in electrical engineering from the University of Maryland in 1989, and a PhD in chemical engineering from the University of Texas at Austin in 1998. In 2003 he received the SEMI Award for North America for his efforts in lithography simulation and education. He became a fellow of SPIE in 2006 and a fellow of IEEE in 2010. In 2009 he received the SPIE Frits Zernike Award for Microlithography. He is an adjunct faculty member at the University of Texas at Austin and spent the fall 2006 semester as a visiting professor at the University of Notre Dame. He has completed a comprehensive graduate-level textbook on optical lithography, Fundamental Principles of Optical Lithography, published in late 2007. Currently, he writes, teaches, and consults on the field of semiconductor microlithography in Austin, Texas, where he lives with his wife Susan and their daughters Sarah and Anna.
