Matt was born and raised right outside of Boston - in Wellesley, MA. He attended Harvard University where he graduated with a A.B. and A.M. in Chemistry in 2014. At Harvard, Matt conducted research in Prof. Andrew Myers's group towards the total synthesis of novel macrolide antibiotic candidates. After college, the frontier spirit got the best of him, and he ventured west to join the Maimone group. When not honing his total synthesis skills, he enjoys reading, chess, and tennis.
