Lecturers, Professors and College Officers,

Matt is a Staff Scientist at the Wellcome Sanger Institute. His job is to manage scientific research and operations for the Thomson faculty group, focusing principally on strategically-important experimental science, and to ensure the delivery of large grant-funded international research projects. He also conducts experiments with high-risk bacterial pathogens at Containment Levels 2 and 3, trains staff to work safely in these environments, and contributes to methodological research and development within the team and the wider Institute.

At Churchill, Matt is a Lecturer and Title A Fellow in Biology, having previously held a Junior Research Fellowship at the College. He supervises first-year Biology undergraduates, mentors Churchill undergraduates and postgraduates, and participates in the undergraduate admissions process.

Matt has a particular interest in ensuring that undergraduates have opportunities to obtain real-world research experience, including vacation research and degree projects, and is very keen to support Churchill students in acquiring this experience.
