Chris Tran is an American speedcuber.

He is currently enrolled in graduate school, working on a PhD in Synthetic Organic Chemistry.

He is most notable for being the first person to learn full ZB in 2009. After a hiatus from cubing between 2011-2015, he relearned full ZBLL in one month from new algorithms, effectively learning ZBLL twice.

In 2015, he became the WCA Candidate Delegate for Georgia and nearby Southeastern USA region. In 2016, he transitioned into becoming the WCA Candidate Delegate for the Northeastern United States. Also during 2016, he joined the WCA Disciplinary Committee, which investigates and handles misconduct at WCA competitions.

He was also 2015 national champion of 2-Layer Blue Smart Egg, and currently holds the world record at 8.07 seconds.

He has also created multiple methods based on ZBLL such as ZBLD (Solving edges and corner simultaneously with ZBLL), CTLS (Using ZBLL to force LL skips and FMC insertion), and LL Skip methods such as ZZ-HW and ZZ-CT.
