Karl Griswold is an Associate Professor of Biomolecular Engineering at the Thayer School of Engineering at Dartmouth, and he holds an Adjunct Faculty position in the Dartmouth Department of Biological Sciences. Karl's work in the field of combinatorial protein engineering has resulted in the development of novel strategies for gene library construction and new approaches to high throughput screening of recombinant enzyme libraries. At the Thayer School, his research group and collaborators are seeking to develop and utilize tools for computational design and evolutionary engineering of biomolecules. This work is focused specifically on the study and development of biotherapeutic agents.
Karl studied as a DOW Foundation Scholar at Texas State University, graduating summa cum laude with a B.S. in chemistry in 1995. After working for two years with Thermo Electron Corporation and two years with Huntsman Corporation, he returned to academia receiving a Ph.D. in chemistry under the direction of Brent Iverson and George Georgiou at the University of Texas at Austin in 2005. He then transitioned to postdoctoral fellowship with George Georgiou in the University of Texas department of chemical engineering before joining the Thayer School of Engineering faculty in June of 2007.
