Matthew A. Morgan received his B.S. in electrical engineering from the University of Virginia in 1999, and his M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in electrical engineering from the California Institute of Technology in 2001 and 2003, respectively. He has authored over 60 papers in the areas of microwave monolithic integrated circuit (MMIC) design, millimeter-wave system integration, and high-frequency packaging techniques. He holds two patents and has four pending in the areas of reflectionless filter development, high-speed serial communication, and ultrawideband millimeter-wave antennas.
During the summers of 1996 through 1998, he worked for Lockheed Martin Federal Systems in Manassas, VA, as an associate programmer, where he wrote code for acoustic signal processing, mathematical modeling, data simulation, and system performance monitoring. In 1999, he became an affiliate of NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, CA. There, he conducted research in the development of MMICs and MMIC-based receiver components for atmospheric radiometers, laboratory instrumentation, and the deep-space communication network.
In 2003, Dr. Morgan joined the Central Development Lab (CDL) of the National Radio Astronomy Observatory (NRAO) in Charlottesville, VA, where he now holds the position of scientist/research engineer. He was project engineer for the K-Band Focal Plane Array development project on the Green Bank Telescope, and technical lead for Band 6 (211-275 GHz) cryogenic IF amplifier production, Band 6 receiver cartridge testing, and Band 3 (84-116 GHz) and Band 6 Orthomode Transducer (OMT) production for the Atacama Large Millimeter Array (ALMA). Dr. Morgan is currently the head of the CDL’s Integrated Receiver Development program, and 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 sub-mm-wave frequency ranges.
