Hi! I’m Carson. I’m a scientist, writer, and artist. Thanks for visiting my website. I hope that you will find something you like here :)
I grew up in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains in Loveland, Colorado before attending Luther College in Decorah, Iowa, where I concentrated on chemistry, religion, and mathematics. After receiving a BA in 2008, I attended graduate school at Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois, and got my PhD in Organic Chemistry in 2013 under the supervision of Professors J. Fraser Stoddart and Samuel I. Stupp. I spent three years as a Miller Research Fellow at the University of California, Berkeley, where I was hosted by Matt Francis in the College of Chemistry. Currently, I am an Assistant Professor of Mechanical Engineering with the ATLAS Institute at the University of Colorado in Boulder. I direct the Laboratory for Emergent Nanomaterials.
My research interests span organic, inorganic, polymer, and biochemistry, as well as materials science and engineering. The formats I use for my artwork embrace digital / computer art, illustration, painting, photography, and body art.
