Nathan S. Mosier is an Assistant Professor in Agricultural and Biological Engineering at Purdue University. He earned a B.S. in BioSystems Engineering from the University of Nebraska - Lincoln, and an M.S. and a Ph.D. in Agricultural and Biological Engineering from Purdue University. Dr. Mosier was also a Ph.D. fellow in the Innovation Realization Laboratory at the Krannert School of Management.

Dr. Mosier's research addresses fundamental topics in bioprocessing and bionanotechnology with current projects in bio-processing and enzyme mimicking catalysts for transforming renewable resources to fuels and chemicals, bio-based batteries for electricity generation, and rapid-prototyping of microfluidic biosensors. There are opportunities for graduate and advanced studies in his research group.

He currently teaches Thermodynamics in Biological Systems I (ABE 201), a sophomore-level course on thermodynamics, heat and mass balances, and engineering analysis for biological systems. Dr. Mosier also team-teaches Process Engineering of Renewable Resources (ABE 580) with Dr. Michael Ladisch.
