Kimberly Carter-Fenk earned a doctorate at The Ohio State University and came to Stanford as a postdoctoral scholar in 2021. In 2022 she will join the Science Fellows to pursue research on fundamental dynamics and intermolecular interactions in deep eutectic solvents, which have applications in the development of fuel cells. Carter-Fenk’s interests span quantum chemistry, spectroscopy, and climate science and sustainability. She was recognized for outstanding teaching at Ohio State, and at Stanford she has served as a mentor to first-generation and low-income students and a representative on the Disability Staff Forum.
