Matthew is from Florida and graduated from the University of Florida in 2009 with a B.S. in Materials Science & Engineering specializing in polymer science. He worked in a nanobiotechnology lab and focused on developing molecular shuttles for lab-on-a-chip devices. He also spent two summers abroad working on modeling the aforementioned devices at Gifu University in Japan and at ETH Zurich in Switzerland. He completed his M.S. in Biomedical Engineering at Columbia University with work focused on modeling the mechanics of the primary cilium. He completed his graduate work investigating the long term safety effects of focus ultrasound mediated blood-brain barrier opening in non-human primates as well as translating the technique to awake subjects. Currently his research investigates the use of focused ultrasound for stimulation of the peripheral nerve in vivo and the mechanism of action.
