Matthew graduated from the University of Hull with a first class honours degree in Electronic Engineering.

The work of his final year project 'Integrating fNIRS with Mobile EEG' led to an interest in new applications of brain measurement. His Ph.D. 'Field deployable brain monitoring with VR' will improve mobile brain monitoring technology and how measurements can be made whilst using a virtual reality headset.

As part of the research cluster he is advancing the practical applications of mobile brain monitoring and developing objective measures of cognitive load. This work uses a range of physiological

sensors to provide an objective view into the function of the brain under cognitive load.

In addition to his academic interests, Matthew is a musician. He also designs, builds and repairs audio equipment.
