Matt Nielson developed electronic materials for high frequency RF applications and a variety of efforts from electronic packaging to wide band gap semiconductors. Matt later led a large research program developing technology in the area of photonics, more specifically ultra-fast optical communications and three-dimensional optical storage materials and systems. Matt was also Lab Manager for the Electrophysics and Materials organization, where he initiated new efforts in bio-electronics and monitoring applications.
Matt currently has the position of Principal Scientist with a research focus on Digital Twin and specifically computer modeling/simulation of physical assets, using first-principle physics and machine learning methods. Applications using the Digital Twins include performance optimization and cyber-security.
Matt received his PhD in Physics from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI), located in Troy, NY.
