Faculty – Robert Matthew
Youth Kinetics Instructor
Robert Matthew is a tinkerer, graduate student, and accidental firestarter. While in London he worked with a variety of colourful people from Artists to Architects at the Royal College of Art. After leaving University with both a crippling debt and a laser wielding robotic spider, he fled to California to seek out a new life. He is trying to meld man and machine into a monstrous mechanical marvel, while helping out with as many projects as possible. Having completed his Masters degree in Mechanical Engineering at Imperial College London, he is now a graduate student in Electrical Engineering at UC Berkley specialising in robotics and assistive exoskeletons.
