Nathan Hantke

Nathan Hantke graduated with his bachelor’s degree in psychology from the University of Puget Sound in Tacoma, WA. Before attending graduate school at Marquette, he spent time as a psychometrist at the University of Washington and was co-investigator on several studies examining epilepsy, contextual memory, and category-specific naming deficits following temporal lobe resection. Nathan’s current research interests include neural dedifferentiation in Alzheimer’s disease, semantic memory, and predicting Alzheimer’s disease using fMRI and risk factors. When he has free time, Nathan enjoys playing music, watching the Portland Trailblazers and Marquette basketball, and spending time with his friends and family.
