Matt comes from a background working in diagnostic genetics in the NHS, later moving to become a research technician. He has experience in human molecular genetics and Next Generation Sequencing. Matt's PhD focusses on defects in single genes that cause early-onset autoimmunity, with a particular focus on diseases of the endocrine system.

Outside of his studies Matt enjoys getting out into the countryside, cycling and cooking.
