Chris Schutte works as a Senior Staff Writer covering Science and Research. He is concentrating in Psychology and Philosophy and is horribly obsessed with basketball, soccer and a plethora of TV shows. He spends his time wishing the Oklahoma City Thunder would eventually win a playoff series, supporting the inconsistent tandem of Real Madrid and Manchester United and you can always approach him by using the code words, “Bears, Beets, Battlestar Galactica.”
