From 2009-2013, he attended Loyola University Chicago and received a Bachelor of Science in Psychology: Natural Science with minors in Biology and Neuroscience. Matthew worked as a Laboratory Manager for the Cognitive and Affective Neuroscience Lab and studied human reasoning using EEG analyzed with ERPs from 2013 -2014 and in 2014, began graduate studies at The University of Texas at Dallas under Daniel C. Krawczyk, PhD, studying human reasoning in healthy and patient populations.

His future goals are to understand deficits resulting from TBIs in lower and higher cognitive capacities, while developing cognitive therapies aimed at reparing reasoning problems that affect daily life.
