Chris received his BS in Physics from the University of Delaware in 2011. He did his undergraduate work under the advisement of Dr. Barry Walker. Dr. Walker’s group studies ultra-intense light-matter interactions in which the electron velocities become relativistic and the magnetic field can no longer be ignored. After high school, Chris joined the United States Marine Corps for a 5-year active duty assignment where he served as a Cryptologic Arabic Linguist. Chris joined the KM group in the summer of 2011. In his spare time Chris enjoys camping, art museums, concerts and playing the guitar.
