Research Interests

Nathan is interested in the neuropsychology of addiction. Specifically, he wants to study the mechanisms of why adolescents are particularly susceptible to substance use disorders. He aims to collaborate with other researchers to bridge the gaps between neuroscience and clinical practice, thereby improving treatment and preventative measures for addiction in teenagers and young adults.
