Nathan Sanders is an astrophysicist and statistician working in industry. His astronomical research focused on core-collapse supernovae, the explosive deaths of the most massive stars in the universe. Like the science in this bite, those explosions rely on laws of physics at scales unlike anything we experience day to day on Earth. Nathan’s statistical work focuses on helping entertainment companies understand, predict, and serve consumer’s interests and preferences for film, TV, and other content. In his free time, Nathan enjoys hiking, gardening, and playing video games.
