Associate Professor, Computer Science, University of Utah & President, NGLY1.org
Matt is an Associate Professor in the School of Computing and a Presidential Scholar at the University of Utah, where he leads the U Combinator software systems research group. His primary research interests are foundational cybersecurity and scientific computing. His son was the first patient ever discovered with a rare disorder known as N-Glycanase deficiency. He wrote a blog post about the process of scientific discovery designed to find more patients, and now the patient community is nearly 30 strong less than three years since the discovery of the disorder. The NGLY1 patient community is actively driving the science toward understanding, treatment and cure. Learn more at NGLY1.org.
