Dr. Matt Flynn is a chemist with a background in organometallic and polymer chemistry. He completed his PhD at Monash University in 2019, studying the structure-reactivity relationship of extremely reactive alkali metal organometallics. After graduating, he worked as a postdoc at the Leibniz Institute for Catalysis (LIKAT) in Germany. Here he investigated the chemistry of bio-derived chemicals from biomass pyrolysis, and developed novel polymers from these to support the developing bio-economy. Since 2022, he has worked as a postdoc at UniSQ, under the NO WASTE pilot precinct. He is responsible for characterising waste materials, and developing new applications to divert these materials from landfill. As part of the NO WASTE pilot precinct, he also works to promote sustainability and education to the local community.
