Kris received his BA (Hons) from Griffith University in Brisbane, Australia, in 1997. He became part of the Australian Diaspora and traveled for years before settling in the United States. He joined Harvard Medical School's Department of Information Technology in July 2005, and was recruited by the Center for Biomedical Informatics in December 2007. He founded the funny ecard site Wrongcards in 2008.
In Dr. Wall's lab Kris worked initially as a bioinformaticist on the Roundup project. He is a front-end web development specialist who likes to build scalable, high-performance servers. These days he is primarily focused on making Autworks a very useful site to the autism community as a whole.
When he's not working, drawing, designing or thinking about Autworks, he walks his dog. He has slept at least three times in the past two months.
