Year joined: 2022

Waffles joined the Kristufek lab in 2022, two months right after his birth as a Post Dog in training. Under the rigorous training by his two parents, Professor Samantha Kristufek and Dr. Khoi Van, he was promoted to Post Dog of the Kristufek lab. While taking his job seriously in the lab, he is also the CEO (Chief Entertaining Officer) of all Kristufek group parties and outings.

His research involves detecting environmental biochemicals (sniffing), mechanochemistry and impact of animal teeth on other materials (playing with his toys), brain chemistry during rest (sleeping).

In his free time, he loves hanging out with his parents, going for walks, and watching birds.
