Matt joined RACE after earning his Master’s degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Connecticut (UCONN). Prior to joining RACE, Matt worked for the Connecticut Department of Transportation (DOT) performing geotechnical engineering. His time as a geotechnical engineer in the Division of Bridges within the DOT has given him skilled insight into earth-structure interactions as well as the effects of water on load bearing structures.
Matt performed research for UCONN in conjunction with the DOT that focused on predictive modeling of a new bridge construction method. He developed a computer model to predict the long-term settlement of the bridge abutments and analyzed the thermal cycles of bridges to develop a deeper understanding of the limitations of the new construction method. At the conclusion of the project, he presented the results at the Northeast States Geotechnical Engineering conference, sharing the new data and analysis with other states’ Departments of Transportation as well as the federal Department of Transportation.
Matt grew up sailing in Eastern Connecticut and is passionate about access and preservation of the coastline. He is intimately familiar with Fisher’s Island Sound, often dropping anchor at East Harbor or West Harbor on summer weekends.
