Matthew joined the Raja Group in the Chemistry department at the University of Southampton in June 2016 as a post-doctoral researcher, working on an inter-disciplinary project with Engineering and the Optoelectronics Research Centre on utilising photonic fibres in catalysis.


Previously Matthew was a post-doctoral researcher at the Georgia Institute of Technology from January 2015 to May 2016 where he worked on developing sorbents for CO2, NOx and SOx sorption. Prior to this Matthew received his PhD from the University of Southampton in November 2014 for his work on synthesising multimetallic zeotype catalysts for acid and redox catalysis.

Through his research Matthew has forged collaborations with a range of academic and industrial partners including the Southampton Clean Carbon Strategy Group, Diamond, ISIS, ORNL, Honeywell LLC, SiGNa, UOP and the UK Catalysis Hub. These collaborations have seen Matthew’s work be widely recognised through his recent accolades including the Honeywell LLC Inventers Award (2014) and the BZA Founders Award (2014). His current research focusses on Carbon Utilisation, Synchrotron-based Characterisation and the Design of Metal Nanoparticles.
