Matthew is an MPhil candidate in Population Health Science. Matthew received his undergraduate neuroscience BS degree from Brandeis University in Massachusetts, US.
Matthew’s undergraduate research sought to understand genetic involvement in the temperature sensing circuitry of neuron AFD in C. elegans to better understand the neurological components of behavioral adaptations.
Matthew’s current research seeks to understand the human and system factors involved in the safe, effective and timely use of injectable end-of-life symptom control medications for adults dying at home.
His master’s thesis tries to answer the question: what works well and areas of improvement in anticipatory prescribing?
