Matthew Williams | Engineer

Matthew Williams is an innovative engineer, with drive and extensive biomedical knowledge. Born and raised in Shreveport, LA, Matthew’s first job was as a laboratory assistant in a biomedical research laboratory located in the medical school in Shreveport. He, later was a member of the Science and Medicine Academic Research Training (SMART) Program which only selects 12 high school seniors in the Shreveport-Bossier City area to conduct post-doctoral level research under the guidance leaders in their respective fields of research.

He next attended school at Centenary College of Louisiana and Mississippi College earning a Bachelors in Biology and Masters in Biological Medical Sciences respectively in his pursuit of attending medical school. However, after fighting cancer and forming a new perspective on life while in graduate school, a life in the medical field no longer seemed appealing to him. And after some soul searching he realized his passion for the engineering world.

He then attended Louisiana Tech University and earned his Bachelor’s in Mechanical Engineering. While in school, he played a large role in Louisiana Tech’s Eco-Marathon Team where he was part of a group of students that designed and built extremely fuel-efficient vehicles, powered by diesel and compressed natural gas. These vehicles were achieving up to the gasoline equivalent of 500 miles per gallon.

Matthew has a passion for learning how things work and how to improve them. Additionally, it is through his life experiences which he learned to be an effective communicator and gained a unique perspective on biomedical devices for an engineer. He gives back to his city through community service. He enjoys cooking, mountain and road biking, weightlifting, duck hunting and golf.
