Matt graduated from Caltech with a PhD in chemical engineering. He earned his BS in chemical engineering from UC Santa Barbara (UCSB) in 2010. At UCSB, Matt studied stabilization methods for precious metal CO2 reduction catalysts in the McFarland group where he also developed a passion for emerging primary energy generation technologies. He has turned this passion into reality at Caltech where he studied solar to fuel systems that can provide long-term storage of solar energy for on-demand power delivery. The goal of his research was to develop stable, efficient and economic devices that form the active component of a solar fuels generation system.
Matt is currently an entrepreneur in residence at Orca Sciences
