Nathaniel Schafheimer

Nathaniel completed his PhD in Jonathan King's lab studying how ultraviolet light damages the proteins of the lens of the human eye. He became interested in how biology instruction could be enhanced with online tools while helping make several laboratory demonstration videos for the inaugural run of 7.00x: The Secret of Life, the department's first MOOC on the edX platform. In his role as an MITx Postdoc, Nathaniel helps create and manage online courses for the biology department, both for residential offerings and for world audiences.
