Centre for Doctoral Training in Ultra Precision Engineering



Matthew obtained an MEng in Electrical and Electronic Engineering from the University of Cambridge in 2013, with a dissertation on compact high voltage power supplies for driving liquid crystal cells. He went on to join the EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Ultra Precision under the supervision of Prof Bill O'Neill, working on the design of a hybrid precision laser manufacturing platform, and modelling a retinal projection display. He obtaining an MRes degree in 2014, and is currently working towards a PhD in the Photonics and Sensors Group under the supervision of Prof Daping Chu.

Research interests:

  • 3D display technology
  • MEMS architectures for holographic display
  • Novel diffracting structures
  • Human visual depth perception

Current research

Matt's project page

Matthew's current research involves developing a novel 3D Heads-Up Display for automotive applications. By coupling light through waveguides rather than using free space projection, the display is suitable for constrained areas, such as the side windows of a car.
