Ph.D. Student

SHORT BIO

Nathan graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Chemical Engineering from Texas Tech University in the Spring of 2020. He then continued into the PhD program at Texas Tech in the Summer of 2020. His minor in polymers and materials led to his interest in the numerous applications and potential of polymers to solve important problems of tomorrow and expand the current reach of technology. Nathan will be working on fabrication of polymer electrolytes to build electrolyzers to support deep space exploration and NASA Mars missions. Besides designing an electrolyzer, Nathan is also interested in using in-situ and biomass resources to reduce waste and maximize efficiency of carbon dioxide reduction. Nathan loves traveling, and is a part of the Engineering Diplomats that help other students achieve their study abroad goals. He also enjoys making music, cooking, board games, and outdoor sports like Ultimate frisbee.
