As Digital Inclusion Officer, Matt is responsible for the day to day reporting of the Future Digital Inclusion project, as well as keeping an eye on government policy and leading on projects with the Sheffield Test Bed and Leeds City Council. Matt is always inquisitive, happy to work with other teams and learn more!
In his spare time Matthew makes the best of both the indoor and outdoor worlds. He loves getting outside bouldering, cycling and playing five-a-side football. But he also loves staying in and playing too many hours of video games, watching films and TV (especially sci-fi) and reading a good novel.
Matthew says... "The greatest benefit technology has brought to our society is communication. Using Skype to see and speak with friends and loved ones on the other side of the planet has changed the world as we know it. My Grandad has recently bought himself a tablet and has got online. It keeps him entertained finding all of his favourite old films and checking for football news, particularly about Sheffield Wednesday!"
