Nathan joined the lab in June 2018 and started as an MSIPP (Minority Serving Institution Partnership Program) intern for the Subsurface Science & Technology Group. His work initially focused on cementitious waste form mass release behavior. Since then, he has transitioned to a post-bachelor’s research associate position and is focused on developing electrocatalysts for sustainable seawater electrolysis to promote a green hydrogen economy. While pursuing an undergraduate degree, Nathan was involved in the research and characterization of Gecko-like polymer adhesives. In addition, he was involved in optimizing and simulating the steam methane reformation process used to produce hydrogen for an ammonia plant. From this experience, he received his certificate for PRO/II Advanced Process Simulation from SimSci.
