Nate joined the Balskus Lab in 2017 after completing his Ph.D. with Prof. Dianne Newman at Caltech, where he studied the biochemistry of extracellular electron transfer. In his postdoc, he is interested in using chemical approaches to study how enzymes catalyze difficult reactions such as halogenations of unactivated carbon centers. Outside of the lab, he enjoys hiking and board games.
