Matthew S. Goodwin is an Interdisciplinary Associate Professor at Northeastern University with joint appointments in the Bouvé College of Health Sciences and College of Computer & Information Science, where he is a founding and key faculty member of a new doctoral program in Personal Health Informatics and Directs the Computational Behavioral Science Laboratory. Goodwin is also a Visiting Associate Professor in the Department of Biomedical Informatics at Harvard Medical School, an Adjunct Associate Professor of Psychiatry and Human Behavior at Brown University, and the former Director of Clinical Research at the MIT Media Lab. He has previously served on the Executive Board of the International Society for Autism Research and the Scientific Advisory Board for Autism Speaks. He has over 20 years of research and clinical experience working with children and adults on the autism spectrum and developing and evaluating innovative technologies for behavioral assessment and intervention, including video and audio capture, telemetric physiological monitors, accelerometry sensors, and digital video/facial recognition systems. Goodwin has received several honors, including a dissertation award from the Society of Multivariate Experimental Psychology, Peter Merenda Prize in Statistics and Research Methodology from the University of Rhode Island, Hariri Award for Transformative Computational Science, named an Aspen Ideas Scholar by the Aspen Institute, and a career contribution award from the Princeton Autism Lecture Series. He has obtained research funding from a variety of sources, including the National Institutes of Health, National Science Foundation, National Endowment for the Arts, Simons Foundation, Nancy Lurie Marks Family Foundation, and Autism Speaks. Goodwin received his B.A. in psychology from Wheaton College and his MA and PhD, both in experimental psychology and behavioral science, from the University of Rhode Island. He completed a postdoctoral fellowship in Affective Computing in the MIT Media Lab in 2010.
