Matthew is a data research specialist at the Getty Research Institute, where he uses computer-aided analysis of cultural datasets to help model long-term trends in iconography, art markets, and the social relations between artists.
He received his PhD in Art History in 2016. For his dissertation research, he used computational network analysis to explore the long-term changes in the organization of print designers, engravers, and publishers in the Netherlands between 1500–1700.
While at UMD, Matthew held the University of Maryland Museum Fellowship at the National Gallery of Art in the Department of Northern Baroque Painting and was a graduate assistant for Digital Humanities at the Michelle Smith Collaboratory for Visual Culture. He has been a recipient of Kress and Getty Foundation grants for their summer institutes in digital art history, and was a finalist for the 2015 Paul Fortier prize for best paper by a young scholar at ADHO’s annual Digital Humanities conference. In addition to numerous invited domestic and international lectures, he has presented research at the Renaissance Society of America, the Sixteenth Century Association, and the College Art Association.
