Matt is a Research Scientist at Google.
Previously, he was an Associate Professor (Reader) at the University of Bath (2011-2015), Founder and CTO of Cloudburst Research Inc. (2009-2015), and a Postdoctoral Researcher at EPFL (2009-2011), UBC (2008-2009) and Microsoft Research (2006-2007).
His research interests are in Computer Vision, Machine Learning and Environmental Informatics. In 2017 he won the ICCV Helmholtz Prize (test of time award) for his work with David Lowe on panoramic image stitching.
