Matthew is a researcher at the Vrije Universiteit in Amsterdam, focusing on visualizing nutrients in organisms through the use of nanoparticles called quantum dots.

His research focuses on the use of highly fluorescent nanoparticles, called quantum dots, to visualize nutrients in soil, bacteria, fungi and plants. Using this novel technique, we are able to visually see what is going on in belowground ecosystems; effectively, highlighting soil processes that would otherwise be dark and opaque.
