Matt Reynolds, currently Nortel Networks Assistant Professor in Electrical and Computer Engineering at Duke University, will be joining UW this fall with a joint position in Computer Science & Engineering and Electrical Engineering.
Matt’s research, which has resulted in 5 best paper awards, focuses on ultra-low power sensing and computation, RFID, wireless power transfer, biomedical applications, and smart materials and surfaces. Matt holds 12 patents and has co-founded three companies. He received his S.B., M.Eng., and Ph.D. degrees from MIT.
Matt joins Maya Cakmak, Shayan Oveis Gharan and Zach Tatlock as new additions to the CSE faculty. Matt, Maya, and Zach will be arriving this fall (along with 2012 hire Jeff Heer), while Shayan will join us following a one-year Miller Fellowship at UC Berkeley.
Matt is the 4th hire in the UW College of Engineering ExCEL program (“Experimental Computer Engineering Lab”) for joint hires between CSE and EE. ExCEL has yielded remarkable hires: Shwetak Patel, Georg Seelig, and Josh Smith in addition to Matt.
