Matt is a physician by background, having received a distinction in his medical degree from Cardiff University. As a military sponsored undergraduate he went on to complete his junior doctor years at Derriford Hospital in Plymouth and it was then he developed an interest in clinical research supporting studies evaluating the use of thromboelastography in pancreatitis.
Matt then spent 3 years working as a Royal Navy Medical Officer and earned his green beret to work as a doctor in the Royal Marines. This time included a range of operations and exercises across the Middle East, Somalia, Keyna, Albania and Norway.
Going back into the NHS, Matt then worked in emergency medicine before entering specialist training in Anaesthetics. He founded uMed in 2017 recognising the opportunity to automate key parts of the clinical study process by using electronic health record data. Matt is also a fellow of the NHS Clinical Entrepreneur Programme.
Matt now lives with his wife and two boys in the Boston area of Massachusetts.
