Hi, my name is Nathaniel and I have been around since 15 September 2005. I had my postgraduate studies at the School of Materials Science and Engineering [1] at Nanyang Technological University, Singapore and am now working at the A*STAR Instutite of High Performance Computing [2]. My areas of specialization are in piezoelectricity, piezoceramics, piezopolymers, and phase-field modeling of ferroelectrics using the time-dependent Ginzburg-Landau (TDGL) framework. Prior to my PhD, I worked in Olympus Technologies [3], Singapore where I specialized in optical engineering. I spent my childhood in Africa (about 10 years of my life), hence a number of edits pertaining to Africa.
