Nathan Kotlarewski completed his undergraduate studies in Industrial Design with first class honours in 2012. Nathan’s PhD focuses on product development for commercial applications utilising balsa wood as a sustainable, lightweight alternative to current commercial materials. Inspired through research-led practice, Nathan has developed design concepts to promote balsa wood for future global construction and building developments. His research considers the social, environment and economic responsibilities of key stakeholders from smallholders, manufacturers, and consumers while investigating new markets through design thinking. Nathan is currently completing Postdoctoral studies at the University of Tasmania.
