My name is Matthew Tavares and I am a multidisciplinary roboticist and mechatronics specialist. I started building robots at the age of nine, won BattleBots IQ and a position at Hanson Robotics before reaching eighteen, and founded the UTDallas combat robotics group that continues to compete to this day. For 7 years I developed ocean bottom seismic recorders and geophysical equipment that had to stand up to the harshest conditions on earth. I spent 3 years working with Paul Bernhard Exhibits on the Wiess Energy Hall at the Houston Museum of Science. My current goals include spending time with my wife, working on interesting projects with talented people, and eventually buying a house. I have a passion for all things creative and I am ready to help you with your next project! Connect with me via social media, view my past work , or contact me now if you're ready to get started!
