Matthew graduated from the University of Bath in 2019 with an MChem in Chemistry for Drug Discovery. During his degree, Matthew completed a yearlong industrial placement at Freudenberg Performance Materials, where he worked on developing non-woven polymers for use as battery components. In his final year master’s project, Matthew worked as part of the Sartbaeva group exploring the possibility of the ensilication method for the protection of bacteriophages. This project was part of wider work by the group, which aims to deliver the ensilication process as a novel alternative to the cold chain system currently required for the transport of many biological materials. Outside of work, Matthew enjoys going to the gym and playing for the University’s American football team.
