Matthew received his bachelor of arts in German Studies from the University of Cincinnati in 2016.

His bachelor’s thesis, “Die fragmentierte Frau: Gender in Arthur Schnitzler's Traumnovelle” explored the significance of gender in the aforementioned novella by Arthur Schnitzler.

His other interests include political theory, contemporary literature, and media studies.
