Nate is a Bioinformatics and Computational Biomedicine PhD student at Oregon Health and Science University (OHSU). His current projects involve dose-response feature analysis for effective comparability, and parameter optimization methods in super-resolution single particle tracking. Previous to this, he spent 5 years as a mechanical engineer at Visiongate where he worked to develop a biomedical device employing high-throughput 3D single cell imaging as a lung cancer diagnostic tool. Nate has a BS in Biological Physics from the University of Washington (UW) and worked in the UW human photonics lab (HPL) on novel applications of Optical Projection Tomography Microscopy. He has broad interests in machine learning, high-performance computing, medical imaging, early-detection and treatment of cancer, and data-driven design of biomedical devices.
