Matt Morgan received his B.S. degree in electrical engineering from the University of Virginia in 1999, and the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees from the California Institute of Technology in 2001 and 2003, respectively, where he conducted research in the development of Monolithic Millimeter-wave Integrated Circuits (MMICs) and MMIC-based receiver components for atmospheric radiometers and deep-space communications. He has authored over 40 papers and has two patents in the areas of MMIC design, millimeter-wave system integration, and high-frequency packaging techniques.
As a Scientist and Research Engineer at the NRAO Central Development Lab (CDL) in Charlottesville, VA, Matt is involved in the design and development of low-noise receivers, components, and novel concepts for radio astronomy instrumentation in the cm-wave, mm-wave, and submm-wave frequency ranges. He was Project Engineer for the K-Band Focal Plane Array on the Green Bank Telescope, and is currently the head of CDL’s Integrated Receiver Development Program.
