After leaving graduate school with an M.S., Nathan started working in data analytics and machine learning, including for Madison-based mobile game company PerBlue. Currently, Nathan works writing quantum computer control and tuning software at Infleqtion.

Career Alchemy: One Chemist’s Journey Through a Chemical-Free Career

The ACS estimates that only 30% of chemists work in academic settings and many chemistry majors leave the field of chemistry altogether. It can be unclear how to navigate the non-academic career landscape. In this talk, I will provide an overview of my own career path, share reflections on graduate school and job hunting, and discovering what work I wanted to do. I will discuss my experience working as an analyst and tech at a very small company (Extract Systems), a data analyst at a a mid-sized video game studio (PerBlue Entertainment), and as a software engineer at a rapidly growing quantum technology manufacturing company (Infleqtion).
