As Director of Engineering at Global Health Labs (GH Labs), Matt Keller leads a team that specializes in the research and development of optical and electronic sensor systems (many based on spectroscopy, optical imaging, or electrical impedance) that optimize healthcare delivery in low- and middle-income countries.

Prior to GH Labs, Matt served as a Principal Investigator, and before that, Senior Research Scientist at Global Good, an investment fund of Intellectual Ventures, where he and his team contributed to the development of an optical spectroscopy-based soil measurement device to aid smallholder farmer decision-making, a mobile phone-based rapid diagnostic tests reader, and the optical spectral quality analyses of medicine and fortified foods, among other innovations.

Earlier in his career, Matt was a Senior Research Scientist with Lockheed Martin Laser and Sensor Systems, where he developed novel surgical laser technology and neurophotonics platforms, including laser-based cochlear implants.

Matt earned his PhD, MS, and BE in Biomedical Engineering from Vanderbilt University.
