Biography

Assistant Professor


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


Matt Hall's research focuses on wind and marine renewable energy technologies and renewable energy integration. His training is in mechanical engineering, with time spent at the universities of PEI, New Brunswick, Victoria, and Maine. Under the banner of climate change mitigation, most of Matt's efforts are aimed at either lowering the cost of deep-water (floating) offshore wind energy or exploring energy system decarbonization pathways for PEI.
