Nate is a Ph.D. candidate in the Interdepartmental Program in Transportation. Prior to joining JTL for his Ph.D. research, Nate obtained a B.S. in Industrial Engineering and Operations Research at UC Berkeley, where he worked with California Partners for Advanced Transportation Technology, and a M.S. in Transportation from MIT, advised by Professor Carolina Osorio in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering. Nate’s main research focus is how shared mobility-on-demand systems are impacted by stochastic travel times, including system performance and reliability as well as consumer preference. Through Nate’s dissertation research, he aims to develop a better understanding of the potential adoption of these systems and the size of the role they may play in reducing urban congestion and other negative externalities.
In addition to his research pursuits, Nate enjoys curling as part of the MIT Curling team and playing board games.
