Matt McCambridge

Instructor

 

Matt McCambridge is excited to be teaching D-Lab: Mobility and D-Lab: Design and co-teaching D-Lab: Design for Scale, after many years encountering the amazing work and people coming from D-Lab.  

A 1998 graduate of Stanford's Product Design program (a multidisciplinary program within the Mechanical Engineering department), Matt has designed and manufactured mobility technology for people with disabilities in the United States and in less resourced settings around the world.  

Matt has worked on teams creating sophisticated technologies (Dean Kamen's iBOT balancing wheelchair for Johnson and Johnson) and simple, robust ones (Whirlwind Wheelchair's RoughRider), and looks forward to working with students who are fired up to create excellent technology for people who live in challenging environments.    

In addition to teaching at D-Lab, Matt is working with CITE as a Research Engineer developing and carrying out innovative tests of wheelchairs in developing countries.
