Nathan Vance graduated from Hope College in May 2017 with majors in computer science and chemistry. While at Hope, he worked closely with Dr. Will Polik in the chemistry department to build high throughput computing systems ranging from cluster computers to dynamically allocated cloud systems.
Nathan started graduate school at the Univeristy of Notre Dame in the Fall of 2017. He is part of Dr. Dong Wang’s research group, which focuses on social sensing, edge computing, machine learning and cyberphysical-human systems. Nathan is particularly interested in edge computing, which applies the concepts of cloud, cluster and ubiquitous computing to commodity hardware in close proximity to the data being processed.
