About Matthew

Matthew Chun, Ph.D., is a technology specialist and patent agent in the Boston office of Fish & Richardson P.C. His practice focuses on patent drafting and prosecution for mechanical, electrical, and software inventions. He also has significant experience conducting freedom to operate studies, infringement opinions, and invalidity analyses. Matthew has advised and worked with clients ranging from multinational technology companies to individual inventors in the areas of artificial intelligence/machine learning, medical devices, robotics, acoustic devices, telecommunications, signal processing, automobiles, unmanned aerial vehicles, power tools, mobile devices, Internet of Things, computer network architecture, computer hardware, and electrical system components.

Matthew is a J.D. Candidate at the Harvard Law School, where he is Managing Editor of the Harvard Journal of Law and Technology. Prior to law school, he attended the University of Oxford as a Rhodes Scholar, completing his Ph.D./DPhil in Engineering Science. Working at the University of Oxford’s Computational Health Informatics Laboratory and the Nuffield Department of Population Health, Matthew’s research focused on utilizing machine learning approaches for assessing stroke risk in a contemporary Chinese cohort of 0.5 million individuals. During the COVID-19 pandemic, Matthew contributed to the United Kingdom’s pandemic response as a health data analyst for the Alan Turing Institute’s DECOVID initiative. Matthew earned his B.S. in Mechanical Engineering from MIT with a minor in Management Science.

In addition to intellectual property law and academic research, Matthew has experience leading an early-stage prosthetic hardware venture, serving as an emergency medical technician, conducting due diligence for an impact investment fund, and providing financial advice for companies on M&A transactions at a leading investment banking firm. Matthew also has a particular interest in social causes such as restorative justice, having volunteered with children and vulnerable adults in the United Kingdom’s criminal justice system and having tutored incarcerated persons in a medium-security prison. In his free time, Matthew enjoys reading, hiking, and running ultramarathons.
