Biography:  

Matthew enrolled at the Georgia Institute of Technology in 2006 and quickly joined the Department of Civil Engineering. During his undergraduate years, Matthew consistently made the Dean’s List, worked for three semesters as a co-op student at Southern Company, a major electrical utility provider, and was heavily involved with the student sports group “SWARM.” After finishing most of his core classes, Matthew began to express an interest in transportation. This interest was cemented when, in the fall of 2010, Matthew was able to visit the cities of Moscow, St. Petersburg, and Helsinki through the Mundy Global Learning Experience Endowment Fund and experience public transportation systems in different parts of the world. Matthew graduated from the Georgia Institute of Technology in 2011 and, after working with the Metro Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority (MARTA) during the summer of 2011 through the school’s University Transportation Center, he returned to Tech to further his education in transportation by pursuing his Master’s degree. He is currently a member of the Institute of Transportation Engineers and is working on a project with MARTA on how climate change adaptation can be incorporated into a transit agency’s asset management system.

In his spare time, Matthew is a co-host on WREK radio’s “Ramblin’ Wreck Report” sports show and likes biking, attending Tech sporting events, playing board games, and trap shooting.
