Thor Nagel

Class of 2017-2018

Vanderbilt University, 2017
Chemical Engineering

Why I chose ESTEEM: I chose ESTEEM because it allowed me to take my Chemical Engineering undergraduate background and grow my skill set to become more well rounded in business situations. I loved working at a startup during my junior year internship, and I was excited to learn more about the business side of startups.

My capstone thesis project and why I’m excited about it: I am working with Booz Allen Hamilton on the potential applications of additive manufacturing. I have always loved materials, especially alternative materials, and the ability to explore this new manufacturing technology with such a talented group of advisors is an incredible opportunity.

What I hope to do after ESTEEM: PhDCEP, Consulting, Tech Startup, really not sure!

What I like to do when I’m not working in Innovation Park: Play golf, cook, or raise money for OrphaNetwork
