Matthew works on philosophical problems bridging philosophy of science, ethics, and political theory. His dissertation research focused on recent experiments in socio-ethical engagement with scientists and engineers, exploring the tension between social constraints and individual moral responsibility within technoscientific contexts.
He has held positions at McGill University (Montreal Institute for Clinical Research), Harvard University (Program on Science, Tech & Society), and is currently Professor of Responsible Research and Innovation at Leibniz Universität Hannover.
