McLain received his B.S. in Chemical Engineering and Minor in Economics from Montana State University in 2015, an M.S.CEP from MIT in 2017, and his Ph.D. from MIT in 2021. He enjoys hiking, snowboarding, rock climbing, music, cooking, travel, and, of course, coffee in all its wonderous forms. In his thesis work, he uses experimental and computational models to evaluate, understand, and improve properties of porous electrodes for carbon dioxide reduction that will enable stable, selective, high-current density electrochemical conversion at low cell voltages.
