Matthew received his Ph. D. in physics in late 2011 under the advisement of Prof. Chris Regan at UCLA. Since then he has been a principle investigator developing in situ electron microscopy techniques at both a federally funded research and development center (FFRDC) and the University of Southern California. Matthew has developed techniques to measure temperature and pressure using precision measurements of volume plasmons in different materials, and has collaborated in the development of new electrical characterization techniques with nanometer spatial resolution. In addition, he has taught the graduate level class in transmission electron microscopy at USC for several years. Matthew is currently working on understanding the fundamental limits to precision measurements done inside the transmission electron microscope, in terms of both spatial and spectral resolution.
At BioPACIFIC MIP, Matthew serves as the point of contact and lead scientist for the next generation MicroED tool at UCLA
