Matt studies deviance in work involving machine intelligence, specifically robotics, and seeks answers to questions such as “How do workers, organizations, and AI engage in deviance, and what happens when they do?” He has also performed extensive field research on robotic surgery, robotic materials transport, and robotic telepresence in healthcare, elder care, and knowledge work.
Matt’s research on robotic surgery was published in 2018 at Administrative Science Quarterly and his work on robotic telepresence was published in 2014 in Organization Science. He was selected in 2012 as a Human Robot Interaction Pioneer, and is a regular contributor to popular outlets such as Wired, MIT’s Technology Review, TechCrunch, Forbes, and Robohub.
Matt received his Ph.D. from the Sloan School of Management at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in the Information Technologies department. He also took a two-year hiatus from his doctoral studies to help found and fund Humatics, an MIT-connected, full-stack IoT startup.
