About Matthew

  • Originally from Connecticut

  • Bachelor of Science from Caltech in 2013

  • Undergraduate research with Geoffrey Blake in 2011 researching ab-initio quantum computation of THz vibrational modes to compliment the lab’s experimental research in terahertz spectroscopy.

  • Internship at Pfizer in 2012 developing cheminformatic tools for medicinal and computational chemists.

  • Entered the Chemistry PhD program at Stanford in Summer of 2013. My advisor is Vijay Pande.

  • Taught (TA-ed) intro chem. lab (Caltech, 2011), the Caltech p-chem series: quantum mechanics, spectroscopy, and stat. mech. (2012-2013), and Stanford stat. mech. and thermo classes (2014).

  • I think computation should have a greater emphasis in undergraduate instruction and worked with the Stanford chem curriculum chair to develop matlab exercises for undergraduate p-chem classes (2013).

  • Enjoy programming in Python, C++, C#, and Mathematica.

  • Can program in (but may not necessarily enjoy) Java, C, matlab, and javascript.

  • Hobbies include flying light aircraft (private pilot since 2010), jamming on my keyboard (the musical kind), and mario kart (preferably double dash).
