Matthew graduated from Newcastle University having obtained an MChem Master of Chemistry with study abroad. Matthew also studied at Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München in Germany, specialising in improving the efficiency and intensity of OLED technology by designing a catalogue of novel tertiary phosphine ligands for coordination with cheaper, alternative metals, removing the need for reliance on rare earth metals. During his Masters studies, Matthew worked on researching a family of fluorophores known as Boranils, which are commonly used for imaging probes, fluorescent dyes and switches.
Since joining HGF in 2018 as a trainee patent attorney, Matthew has gained experience in patent drafting, prosecution and freedom-to-operate matters in a number of different areas of chemistry. His main focus of expertise is directed to materials chemistry and fluorescent technology but also has experience in pharmaceuticals and medical device technology.
