This is me.

I am a Senior Software Engineer at Autodesk, Inc. with a focus on CAD/CAM software solutions for manufacturing, medical and artistic applications. I'm also the Scrummaster for my Scrum team. My day-to-day activites include solving problems, removing blockers for the team and designing software, as well as writing code in C++, C#, Python and others. I also have an interest in Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence (more on that later.)

I am married to my best-friend, Sonya Gilbert (née Lange). She is my constant-navigator, foodie-friend, and co-explorer. We have a cat named Vern. He talks a lot.
I currently live in Salt Lake City, UT. I lived in Kentucky for a long time, especially at the beginning. I lived in Indiana for a minute.

Graduate School

I was a graduate student in the School of Computing at the University of Utah and successfully completed a M.Sc. in Computer Science. My advisor was Dr. Ellen Riloff and I was a member of the Natural Language Processing research group.

My research was on automatic coreference resolution (detecting and tracking entities in free text) and I was also involved with the development of Reconcile, an open source, extensible system for automatically resolving noun phrases.

This is my University website with more details on my time there and a list of my publications.


I once had a band named American Hollow -- a group I founded with my friends. We landed an independent record contract, toured the western US and released some records.

The Outdoors

I like being outside and Utah provides ample opportunities to indulge in this pursuit. I am a member of Wasatch Mountain Club.

I'm making an effort log all of my adventures on Nathan's Hiking Blog, starting in 2015.


I am a volunteer for the Sierra Club Utah. I get my news from High Country News and Democracy Now! and I also believe organizations like the American Civil Liberties Union and Electronic Frontier Foundation have got your back.
