Nathanial Cooper is a postdoctoral scholar in the Centre for Process Systems Engineering in Chemical Engineering at Imperial College London. His research focuses on supply chain management for biomass.

He performed his doctoral research on the design of reactant distributors in PEM fuel cells, in the Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering department at the University of California, Davis, graduating in 2016. His undergraduate work was in Mechanical Engineering at Brown University, graduating in 2012. 

Nathanial's research interests lie mainly in the areas of renewable energy and sustainable engineering.
