Matt moved to LA and joined the lab in 2010 following 3 years as a sea-going tech with
the Bermuda Atlantic Time-series Study (BATS). He graduated in 2005 with a Masters in Oceanography
from the National Oceanography Centre at the University of Southampton (UK), focusing on trace metal
chemistry in contaminated sediments and heavy metal bioaccumulation in artificial reefs.
Matt is involved in all the lab's research projects including cruise participation and sample/data analysis,
as well as day-to-day operation of the lab.
