    Christopher M Beaudry was born and raised in Waukesha, WI in 1978.  He received his BS in Chemistry and Mathematics (double major) form the University of WI, Madison in 2000.  He then moved west to the University of California, Berkeley for graduate school.  He was one of Dirk Trauner's first class of students.  His graduate work was centered around the biomimetic total synthesis of SNF4435C and SNF4435D.  After leaving Berkeley, Chris joined the group of Larry Overman at the University of California, Irvine.  In Irvine he worked on developing a methodology for the synthesis of macfarlandin E, a rearranged spongian diterpene.  In 2009, Chris accepted a position at Oregon State University to start his independent career.  His interests remain in synthetic chemistry, natural products, biology and catalysis.
