Nate Weiner

Bio:  

Originally from Rochester, NY where I graduated from high school in 2011. I completed my undergraduate degrees in Textile and Biomedical Engineering from NC State in 2016. I spent several summers interning with different companies including Freudenberg Nonwovens, Eastman Chemical, and Nike. Outside of research I like to stay active playing on the club tennis team or going to the gym. I hope to work in materials development on athletic/outdoor products or wearable technology.

Research Interests: 

Smart textiles, wearables, thermal comfort of textiles, thermoelectrics, printed sensors.

Current Research: 

My current research is to study thermoelectric cooling (or Peltier cooling) and its potential in thermal comfort applications. Our goal is to develop a novel flexible thermoelectric technology using standard polymer/textile materials along with innovative conductive printing or patterning techniques. Background research on state of the art technology in active cooling and thermal comfort/management will be conducted to develop a use case scenario for this advanced technology.

Education:

B.S. in Textile Engineering from NC State University ‘16

B.S. in Biomedical Engineering from NC State University ‘16

M.S. in Textile Engineering from NC State University (current)
