Graduate Student

Nathan Morgan Nathan Morgan hails from the beautifully wet Seattle in Washington State. He enjoyed chemistry and math in high school so majoring in chemical engineering at Brigham Young University (BYU) in Utah was a natural choice. After his freshman year, Nathan took a two year leave of absence to volunteer in Thailand. At BYU, Nathan joined Dr. Dan Ess’s computational chemistry research group and work on modeling ethylene oligomerization by chromium based organometallic catalysts. Other research projects included coding algorithms for spin-surface hopping molecular dynamics and determining reaction mechanisms for highly substituted aziridine production. After graduating with a B.S. from BYU in 2022, Nathan began studying a Ph.D. in chemical engineering at MIT. He joined the Green group because of his interest in kinetics and computational modeling. His first project involves predicting the effects of solvation on reactions.Outside of research, Nathan enjoys sudoku and nonogram puzzles and walking along the Charles river.
