Nathan Eagle is a postdoctoral fellow at MIT's Media Lab, where he recently completed his Ph.D. While at the Lab, he has focused on projects that span a variety of disciplines, from appropriate technology to artificial intelligence. His dissertation on machine perception and learning of complex social systems explored the intersections of social network analysis, machine learning, and signal processing. Part of this work was spun out into SenseSix, a mobile matchmaking startup.
Eagle's industry experience includes engineering work at Boeing and NASA, consulting at several Silicon Valley startups, freelance journalism for Wired magazine, and most recently serving as a guest scientist at the Fraunhofer Institute in Germany. His entrepreneurial experience includes co-founding SenseSix, OneCard, and participating in Stanford's Technology Ventures Program as a Mayfield Fellow.
Prior to joining the Media Lab, Eagle spent a year in Nepal as a Fulbright Scholar. He holds a Ph.D. from MIT, and graduated from Stanford University with a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering, an M.S. in Management Science and Engineering, and an M.S. in Electrical Engineering.
