Nathan received his Bachelor’s of Science in Mechanical Engineering in 2010 from Brigham Young University. He received his Master’s in Mechanical Engineering from Purdue University in 2012 in signal processing and nondestructive testing. He received his Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from Purdue University in 2015 in material characterization and manufacturing process modeling of carbon fiber composite materials. Since graduation, Nathan has been employed as a Validation Engineer for the Composites Manufacturing and Simulation Center (CMSC) at Purdue University. Research interests include manufacturing process modeling and validation, material characterization, and uncertainty quantification of composite materials.
