Nate obtained his Master’s degree and Ph.D. in social work at The Ohio State University. He specialized in systems science, which resulted in a strong set of data analytic skills including social simulation modeling and social network analysis. Substantively, Nate is interested in the often reciprocal relationship between individual behavior and context, and in how this can lead to disparities in health, mental health, and well-being. More specifically, Nate has interests in (1) peer-oriented substance abuse treatment and recovery contexts stemming from his graduate work, and (2) tobacco use and the many personal and ecological forces (e.g., stress, peers, industry, policy) that govern it from his present post-doctoral work. Nate is currently moving in the direction of tobacco use and cessation research in substance-use recovery homes.
