2017, B.S. in Biological Engineering, Louisiana State University

Short Bio

Bacteria represent the 2nd largest biomass on the planet, are purveyors of both health and disease, and are emerging as engineer-able micro-factories. Chris is excited to probe mechanisms of bacteria physiology through a biophysics lens in the Si lab to better understand how these ceaseless micro-factories operate on a fundamental level. Prior to joining CMU, Chris received a bachelors in bioengineering from Louisiana State University and a masters in biomedical and molecular sciences research at King’s College London supported by a Rotary scholarship in disease research and prevention. Chris’ hobbies outside of research are in STEM outreach and entrepreneurship.
