    I started my career as an undergraduate at the University of Osnabrück in Germany. Following my BS in Cognitive Science, I pursued a Ph.D. in Cognitive Development from Duke University. Finally, I completed three years of post-doctoral training at the Kennedy Krieger Institute and Johns Hopkins School of Medicine. Currently, I am a Research Assistant Professor at the University of Pittsburgh. In my research, I investigate the role of motor development for social cognition abilities in typically developing children and in children at risk for Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD). To identify changes in cognitive and social abilities following the acquisition of new motor milestones, I use motor training and enrichment paradigms with very young infants to facilitate motor development (e.g., using "Sticky Mittens") and eye tracking assessments to evaluate social perception.

    Dr. Matthews joined the Department of Infectious Diseases and Microbiology in September 2015.His research is focused upon the disproportionate burden the HIV epidemic has on Black gay, bisexual, and other men who have sex with men (MSM) in the US. Specifically, his work examines those mechanisms that explain these health disparities with the goal of designing interventions aimed at interrupting those processes that facilitate HIV-related health disparities. One of his recent manuscripts reviewed the literature to determine the average rate of new HIV infections among Black MSM population, and projected what that would mean for HIV prevalence across future generations unless domestic primary and secondary prevention efforts become more effective in this underserved community.

    Dr. Matthews is a member of the Center for LGBT Health Research at Pitt, Chair of the American Public Health Association LGBT Caucus of Public Health Professionals, and has been an HIV test counselor since 2006. He recently became Principal Investigator of an NIAID-funded R21 to use dried blood spot laboratory techniques to better characterize HIV care continuum outcomes in a community sample of Black MSM.

    I study the interconnections between domestic politics and the international economy. One strand of my research focuses on the effects of politics on the financial markets of both the developed democracies and emerging market democracies. Another strand examines the roles that economic and political institutions play in shaping how governments respond to globalization. My methodological interests relate to modeling spatio-temporal dependence in time-series-cross-sectional and panel data.
