Matthew's research focuses on the theory and application of phylogeography to study the migration of zoonotic RNA viruses with a particular interest in influenza A viruses. Work in his lab includes the integration, analysis, and presentation of viral genetics for public health/animal health surveillance. Current projects include studying approaches to advance phylogeography models and geospatial metadata in virus sequence databases for virus surveillance and analysis of viruses from wastewater, with a focus on influenza, using bioinformatics. Matthew’s lab group is also interested in the molecular epidemiology of RNA viruses including the amplification and sequencing of seasonal influenza for public health surveillance.

Since 2017, Matthew has published many recent articles on influenza in the following journals: Virus Evolution; Emerging Microbes & Infections; Environment International; Infection, Genetics, and Evolution; Influenza and Other Respiratory Viruses; PLoS Computational Biology. He is also on the editorial board for Infection Genetics, and Evolution.
