Kris began his academic life as a mathematician drawn particularly to discrete problem domains such as Combinatorics and Number Theory. Only after exploring his interest in medicine did he discover that all the esoteric concepts he learned as an undergraduate have real and fascinating applications in the computational problems of Neuroimaging and Bioinformatics.

Although Kris’ academic Computer Science training was in Java, he also makes considerable use of tools like Matlab, Python, and Ruby. Kris has experience using modern frameworks like Ruby on Rails to develop web applications for scientific research.

Kris is currently a graduate student in the Computer Sciences Department at the University of Wisconsin — Madison. You can see his personal page in CS here
