Data Scientist, Technergetics


Matthew Reyes is a consultant and an independent researcher developing a reinforcement learning-based approach to influence the maximization on social networks. Previously, he spent more than four years at MIT’s Lincoln Laboratory. He holds a PhD and MS in electrical engineering systems from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, and an MS and BS in math from Wichita State University.

Matthew Reyes is a contractor at Technergetics working on deep learning and FPGAs. He earned his B.S. and M.S. in mathematics at Wichita State University in Wichita, KS. He then earned his M.S. and Ph.D. in EE:Systems at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, MI doing a thesis on compression of Markov random fields. He worked for four years at MIT Lincoln Laboratory doing work on sensor calibration. From early 2015 to early 2019, Matt conducted independent research on compression, belief propagation, and interpolation of Markov fields, and is currently developing a model of social decision-making based on random utility.
