Nathan Vadeboncoeur, Ph.D

President and founder

Nathan's goal is to develop impactful, innovative products that make the world more sustainable. As a former climate change adaptation researcher and consultant he saw the need for up-to-date high quality data and set out to do something about it. That led to the creation of Smart Shores, a company dedicated to providing some of the tools needed for science-based environmental decision-making. A former university instructor, motivational speaker and athletics coach, he believes that data alone isn’t enough to create change - it needs to tell a story.
