Biographical Info

Matt grew up just west of Chicago in Oak Park, IL. He studied geology in addition to pre-medical studies at Amherst College. After graduating, Matt performed bioinspired mineralization research in the Netherlands for a year as a Fulbright Research Fellow. Upon returning to the US, Matt worked as a medical scribe at an outpatient clinic on the South Side for a year before starting medical school. As a medical student at UChicago, Matt developed a computer model to assess the cost-effectiveness of a novel genetic testing strategy for MODY diabetes in pediatric patients, and he also did work exploring olfactory loss in patients at high risk for Alzheimer’s dementia. Matt was also heavily involved in the student-run free clinics and co-organized a phone service to provide longitudinal follow-up for patients diagnosed with COVID-19 during the height of the pandemic. His career interests include underserved primary care and endocrinology. Outside of medicine, Matt has a background in jazz trumpet and can be found strumming a ukulele from time to time. He also enjoys exploring parks, forest preserves, and restaurant patios with his wife and his dog.
