Nathan is completing his fourth year at UC Berkeley. He is interested in design for a human and environmental context, energy use analysis and daylighting. Nathan's M.Arch thesis explored the concept of entropy by employing computational algorithms to diffuse space. He is currently working on his thesis for the MS degree, focusing on occupant response to the luminous environments of library reading rooms. Nathan comes to the profession with an undergraduate degree in economics from Yale and four years of experience teaching middle and high school math and woodworking.
