Assistant Professor

BSc (New Brunswick); MSc (Victoria); PhD (Maine)

Matt Hall does research on wind and marine renewable energy and how these clean resources can be better integrated into the energy system. His training is in mechanical engineering, with time spent at the universities of PEI, New Brunswick, Victoria, and Maine. He publishes regularly about floating offshore wind turbines and is working with collaborators on ways to make PEI’s energy system more self-sufficient and sustainable.
