About Me



My name is Nathan Moeller, and I currently work as a software engineer at IBM. I work at the silicon valley lab (SVL) in San Jose California. I've been at IBM since March of 2017 and I've been working on 3 products, IBM Cloud Private for Data (icp4d), IBM SPSS Statistics, and Watson Studio (previously Data Science Experience). Before IBM, I graduated from the University of Minnesota - Twin Cities with a masters degree in Computer Science, and a bachelors degree from the University of Wisconsin - Madison. My interests are in artificial intelligence, machine learning, web development, gaming, and other areas where computer science can be applied. (And Soccer!!)
