Nate Eichelberger
Nate joined StructureSolver in 2014 after completing a PhD in Geosciences at Princeton University.  Nate's responsibilities include academic outreach, development and presentation of geologic case studies, training and consulting, and contribution to StructureSolver's technical development.
Nate is a native of Alaska.  He studied geology at Bates College where he received the Louis Jordan Jr. Award for Outstanding Senior Thesis in Geology.
Nate's PhD research at Princeton focused on constraining the 3-D kinematics of the central Andean orocline to model the history of crustal thickening at the Altiplano plateau. The project involved extensive geologic mapping in Bolivia, development of balanced cross sections, thermochronology, micro-scale strain analysis, and map-view reconstructions performed in Arc-GIS.
Nate enjoys surfing, kayaking, hiking, skiing and generally spending as much time possible in the outdoors.
