Matt is pleased to be working with CITE this coming year as a Research Engineer developing and carrying out innovative tests of wheelchairs in developing countries.  

A 1998 graduate of Stanford's Product Design program (a multidisciplinary program within the Mechanical Engineering department), Matt has designed and manufactured mobility technology for people with disabilities in the United States and in less resourced settings around the world. 
 
Matt has worked on teams creating sophisticated technologies (Dean Kamen's iBOT balancing wheelchair for Johnson & Johnson) and simple, robust ones (Whirlwind Wheelchair's RoughRider), and looks forward to working with CITE staff and partners to collect the data that will drive the industry to create better technology for people who live in challenging environments. 

In addition to his work with CITE, Matt is an instructor at MIT D-Lab teaching both D-Lab: Design and D-Lab: Mobility.
