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 and technology, arts, and media at the ATLAS Institute at the University of Colorado in Boulder. 

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
