Nathan’s research interests are in the areas of design, technology and communication. He employs an interdisciplinary approach to studying how artefacts (e.g. products, systems or services) are developed, the properties they exhibit and the ways in which people respond to them.
Uncertainty, risk and resilience
Nathan’s EPSRC Early Career Fellowship project focuses on how engineering design methods can be used to accommodate uncertainties, mitigate risks and enhance resilience.
Nathan teaches the first year product design course, demonstrating how design processes and principles are applicable across different engineering domains.
