Brief bio: Chris received his BSc in Chemistry and Biology from the University at Buffalo Honors College in 2015. While at the Univeristy at Buffalo he worked under the direction of Prof. John P. Richard where he employed triosephosphate isomerase (a diffusion-controlled enzyme) as a model to study the use of flexible loops, hydrophobic caging and dianion binding energy as general mechanisms for rate acceleration in biological catalysis. Chris is currently a Chemistry-Biology Interface (CBI) trainee, and is pursuing a Ph.D. in Chemistry with a focus in Chemical Biology.
