Biography

Matthew is working on crystals that clean gas, water and air, or any material for that
matter. With the potential to completely transform the way we dispose of gases like
carbon dioxide, Matthew’s studies are also focused on designing solutions for energy,
agriculture, food and manufacturing.

Dr Matthew Hill graduated with a PhD in chemistry from UNSW in 2006. Since then, at CSIRO, he has developed a platform technology position in a group of materials known as Metal Organic Frameworks (MOFs). Matthew is an ARC Future Fellow, Eureka Prize winner, Victorian Young Tall Poppy of the Year and the winner of the 2014 Prime Minister’s Prize for Science - Malcolm McIntosh Prize for Physical Scientist of the Year.

He has over 70 publications and 9 patents.
