Matt Perkins

Matt Perkins was Scott's slave, toiling on nanoparticle catalysts for fuel cell membranes. He was raised by a clan of black bears in the Catskill Mountains before being kidnapped by two hippies and forced to live in suburban Guilford, CT. He frequently fails Materials Science & Engineering exams and speaks Mandarin Chinese when drinking. He is naive enough to think that he will bring clean energy to China following his success in bringing clean energy to Cornell while serving as President of Kyoto Now!, a student group working to reduce Cornell’s greenhouse gas emissions. Matt's criminal record includes rock climbing Cornell's buildings and "singing" as a Tenor with the Glee Club. He will continue to do research in the diSalvo group in Chemistry. Eventually, he will join GE Energy in Schenectady, NY.
