Assistant Professor

Chris obtained a PhD from Harvard University in Biophysics under the guidance of Leonid Mirny, studying the effects of deleterious passenger mutations in cancer. Working with Dmitri Petrov and Monte Winslow at Stanford University as a Postdoc, Chis helped develop a high-throughput technology to study combinatorial tumor suppressor losses in mice and their effects on clonal dynamics.
