Matthew B. Stokes graduated with a combined Mechanical Engineering and Computer Science Dual Degree and Technological Entrepreneurship Certificate from the University of Western Ontario. He is interested and has been actively involved in consumer 3D printing since 2009, and has completed an Engineering Co-op at KnowRoaming—a Canada-based technology company, where he worked to design and test 3D-printed cellphone cases for embedding hardware. He has owned and operated a MakerBot Replicator since spring 2012, and has competed in several 3D printing design contests.
Currently, Matthew is back at the University of Western Ontario completing a Master's degree in Biomedical Engineering in a collaboration model involving Muscular Skeletal Health Research (CMHR) and Computer Aided Medical Intervention (CAMI) under Dr. Louis Ferreira. His expected date of graduation is 2015.
Matthew has a wide range of interests outside 3D printing, including Raspberry Pi, Android applications, hackathons, Tough Mudder events, and design challenges.
