Matthew was born and raised in and near Green Bay, Wisconsin. He attended the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and received a Bachelor of Science in Biomedical Engineering (2010). During his undergraduate training, Matthew participated in design projects and developed prototype devices for projects including a patient positioning device for femoral vein central line placement, as well as a post-operative implantable camera in collaboration with a UW staff veterinarian.
In 2014, Matthew graduated with a Doctor of Medicine (MD) from the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine. Most recently, Matthew completed post-graduate training (residency) in pediatrics at the University of Minnesota (June 2017). In addition to his involvement in the Innovation Fellows Program, Matthew will continue clinical work as a pediatrician in the UMN Masonic Children's Hospital Emergency Department during the upcoming year.
Matthew's ongoing research interests include exploring new treatment modalities for pediatric solid tumors in conjunction with the development of medical devices that may facilitate more robust translational research within this field. More globally, Matthew is also very interested in developing novel technologies and ideas that will improve the quality of stay and experience for hospitalized children.
Following the Innovation Fellows Program, Matthew will be entering into a clinical fellowship in Pediatric Hematology, Oncology, and Blood and Marrow Transplant at the Children's Hospital of Wisconsin in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
