Matthew Marshall is currently a graduate student in the nuclear engineering department at UC Berkeley. He has a B.S. degree in nuclear engineering from University of New Mexico and a M.S. degree in Environmental Health Sciences from New York University. His master’s thesis was on exploring possible changes in the lungs and liver at the transcriptomic level of an in vivo model that had been exposed to World Trade Center dusts. The goal was to ultimately help identify certain health effects/pathologies that could manifest over the course of a 1-yr post-exposure period. His current research is focused on mobile radiation detection systems. The work is being done in collaboration with the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory Applied Nuclear Physics research group headed by Professor Kai Vetter and is funded through ARI. Upon the completion of his degree, Matt plans to continue performing research in radiation detection instrumentation in the national laboratory setting.
