Pervasive Intelligence was created in 2013 to provide services in the development, evaluation and commercialisation of emerging digital technologies.
Despite being a new company, our team has over 20 years' experience in professional software development, consultancy, project management, research and commercialisation. All this combined with extensive knowledge of complex algorithms, systematic evaluation, and a critical understanding of how to bridge the gap between the academic and commercial worlds.
Matthew spent 10 years in industry working as a software engineer, project manager and consultant for companies such as IBM before studying for a PhD part-time at the University of Surrey, which resulted in a change of career.
As a senior lecturer at the University of Surrey, Matthew was responsible for a range of activities, including looking after the training of over 600 PhD students, running the Computer Science degree programmes and conducting research into the computational properties of the brain. After being frustrated with how difficult it was to take leading-edge research into the real world, he decided it was time to make a difference.
Matthew is a Chartered Engineer (CEng), Chartered Information Technology Professional (CITP), Professional Member of the British Computer Society (MBCS) and a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (FHEA). He has published over 30 articles on a range of subjects in international journals, conferences and workshops, details of which you can find on Google Scholar, and run commercialisation projects both from within and outside university.

Matthew did an excellent job as project manager on our development of the secure electronic voting system (vVote) for the Victorian State Election that ran in November 2014. He provided all of our project planning, technical documentation, coordination and also contributed to the testing. He is highly experienced and professional, and his contribution was absolutely critical in our delivery of the system on time and within budget. I would recommend him without hesitation.
