Description

Chris received his Bachelor of Science degree in chemistry at the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs in 2005. He attained his PhD in chemistry at the University of Illinois at Urbana–Champaign in 2011, under Mary L. Kraft, where his graduate work focused on using secondary ion mass spectrometry (ToF-SIMS and NanoSIMS) in conjunction with atomic force microscopy and scanning electron microscopy for multi-technique correlative analysis of supported lipid membranes. Afterward, he received a US National Research Council Postdoctoral Associateship to work at the National Institute of Standards and Technology under Anne L. Plant, where he studied how eukaryotic cells respond to changes in the physicochemical properties of their extracellular environment, using force microscopy, fluorescence microscopy, and ToF-SIMS. In 2013, he joined the Mass Spectrometry Group at the Environmental Molecular Sciences Laboratory, where he currently focuses on developing new mass spectrometry imaging instrumentation and capabilities to elucidate chemical interactions occurring within microbial communities, soils, and the rhizosphere.
