  • Biography

    My research experiences have been broad but I tend to focus my research on the creative development of strategies towards building complex organic compounds and novel material frameworks. In addition to this ongoing research I also have concurrent projects focused on immunostimulants,and pesticide fate and degradation.

    When not in the lab Kris enjoys climbing, biking, hiking, brewing, coffee roasting and exploring Idaho with his wife, kids, and dog.
