He earned his PhD from the University of California, Berkeley in 2005 as one of Dirk Trauner's first class of students. His graduate work was centered around the biomimetic total synthesis of the polyketide natural products SNF4435C and SNF4435D. Chris conducted postdoctoral research in the group of Larry Overman at the University of California, Irvine. In Irvine he worked the synthesis of aplyviolene and macfarlandin E, two rearranged spongian diterpenes. In 2009, Chris accepted a position at Oregon State University to start his independent career. He was promoted to Associate Professor in 2015 and Professor in 2021. His group works in the area of synthetic chemistry, natural products, biology and catalysis.
