Matthew Bryant is an Associate Professor in the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at the North Carolina State University. He is the founder and director of the Intelligent Systems and Structures Research Lab (iSSRL), which presently employs more than a dozen researchers who are conducting cutting-edge work in areas including hydrokinetic energy harvesting, cyber-physical fluid structure interaction experiments, mechatronics, and aerial, underwater, and ground robotics. Bryant received his Ph.D. in 2012 from the Cornell University Sibley School of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering. Since founding the iSSRL, Bryant has secured over $1.9 million in federal, state, and industrial funding to support his research projects. Through this research, his lab has published over 60 technical journal papers and conference proceedings, and has created and demonstrated first-of-their-kind technologies ranging from cross-domain aerial-underwater autonomous vehicles to 3D printed microfluidic devices for the automated handling of cancer spheroid cell cultures. Additionally, he is the recipient of the 2019 NSF CAREER Award, 2018 North Carolina State University Outstanding Teacher Award, 2015 Teledyne Scientific Partner of the Year Award, and 2012 Intelligence Community Postdoctoral Fellowship.
