As an undergraduate, he was involved in research projects with Dr. Laura White and Dr. Shanna Ivey studying insulin resistance in horses. Matthew then pursued his M.S. in ruminant nutrition at NDSU under the direction of Dr. Joel Caton while simultaneously fulfilling a ¾ time appointment as a technician in the NDSU nutrition laboratory.
