Matt is the Head of Innovation at BAE Systems Maritime Lab and the Chair of the Defence Research and Technology committee at TechUK. Matt has worked in the Defence Industry for the last 20 years, although it often seems longer. He started his career working for DERA, researching things that go ‘Whoosh!’ and things that go ‘Bang!’ often in unison and sometimes intentionally. He then transitioned into QinetiQ managing things that go ‘Bang!’, mostly on purpose. Matt is delighted at the lack of onomatopoeic words associated with the projects he’s worked on in BAE Systems.
