  • Alumnus, Camera Culture

PhD 2014
CTO / CO-Founder Lumii

After graduation, Matt founded Lumii with fellow media lab alum Daniel Leithinger and MIT PhD Tom Baran. At Lumii they create hologram-like 3D imagery by replacing traditional optics with algorithms.

How did your experience at the Lab influence your next step?

Working at the media lab is great preparation for running a startup. You get lots of practice building things and telling people about why they're important.

Don't be afraid to see what the rest of MIT has to offer! The media lab is an amazing place, and there are also tons of great resources, people, and classes  across the campus.
