Matthew joined the lab in fall 2022 as a research assistant after graduating from McGill University with an honours degree in cognitive science and a concentration in computer science.
Matthew seeks to study psychopathologies by bridging the different disciplines of cognitive sciences. As such, he has participated in projects ranging from studying categorical perception through analysing text and speech data using computational approaches, to interpreting formal interpretations of consciousness like the “entropic brain”, using philosophical approaches. Matthew is currently helping with a project examining the risk factors for psychosis by comparing cognitive and MRS data of patients at high-risk for psychosis.
Outside the lab, you’ll most likely find Matthew running, climbing or reading a good book.
