Matthew Scotch is Visiting Professorial Fellow at the Kirby Institute at UNSW. He is also Interim Assistant Dean of Research and Professor of Biomedical Informatics in the College of Health Solutions at Arizona State University (ASU), and Assistant Director of the Biodesign Center for Environmental Health Engineering. His research focuses on genomic epidemiology and bioinformatics of RNA viruses with a particular interest in influenza A viruses. Current projects include studying approaches to advance genomic epidemiology by enrichment of virus sequence metadata (funding: NIH/NIAID 1R01AI164481-01A1) and analysis of viruses from wastewater using bioinformatics (funding: NIH/NLM U01LM013129). The latter is partially funded by the NIH RADx-rad initiative.
His lab group is also interested in the molecular epidemiology of viruses including the amplification and sequencing of influenza A and B viruses for short and long-read high-throughput sequencing (HTS) and public health surveillance.
