Dr. Stokes spent his undergraduate and graduate school years studying polymer synthesis and structure-property relationships. Since graduate school, he has developed expertise in polymer processing including lamination, coatings, and extruded films—blown and cast. Kristoffer has spent his career in applying that knowledge to develop award-winning products and generate commercialized intellectual property in markets ranging from adhesives, batteries, oil and gas field chemicals, textiles, apparel, composites, and consumer goods. This work has generated over 20 granted US patents.
Additionally, he has implemented innovation processes and led globally dispersed product development teams. Currently, he is the founder and principal scientist of Geisys Ventures, LLC—a company dedicated to materials science innovation and consulting.
He holds a PhD in organic chemistry from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, as well as BS and MS degrees from Carnegie Mellon University.
