4th year graduate student
Laub Lab, Microbiology

Chris is a microbiology PhD student in Michael Laub’s lab where he studies bacterial defense mechanisms against phage and phage countermeasures to overcome these defenses. He grew up and went to college in sunny Southern California where he earned his bachelor’s degree in biochemistry from Harvey Mudd College before coming out to MIT to experience seasons for the first time. As an undergrad, Chris worked at his college’s writing center where he came to appreciate a good background and motivation section. In his free time Chris loves to bake, hike, rock climb and ski.
