Prof. Harrington

Prof. Matthew Harrington is Canada Research Chair in Green Chemistry since October 2018 and member of the Chemistry Department at McGill University since August 2017. He received his Ph.D. in 2008 from the University of California, Santa Barbara in the lab of J. Herbert Waite. This was followed by a Humboldt postdoctoral fellowship at the Max Planck Institute of Colloids and Interfaces in the Department of Biomaterials, where he was later a research group leader from 2010 until 2017. His research is focused on understanding biochemical structure–function relationships in biological materials and applying extracted design principles for the development and sustainable production of high-performance bio-inspired materials.
