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. Currently, I’m a Miller Research Fellow at the University of California, Berkeley, where I am hosted by Matt Francis in the College of Chemistry.
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.
