Early Fraternity Life and Career

In the Fall of '99, he was elected to serve as the Chapter's Historian and Parliamentarian. The following year, while being away on Co-op, Matthew took part in the election of Beta Nu's 2001 officers via telecon, having not even met the latest inducted class; he was elected Vice President.

Matthew received his B.S. degree in Engineering Physics with a concentration in Optics in 2002, and received his Ph.D. in Optics from the University of Rochester in 2009. He is currently working as a Research Physicist / Optical Engineer for NASA Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, MD.
