Mathew Horrocks was born and brought up in Halifax, West Yorkshire, before studying Chemistry at Oriel College, University of Oxford. Following this, he moved to the University of Cambridge to work with Professor David Klenerman, developing microscopy techniques to study the processes involved in neurodegenerative disorders, such as Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s disease. 

Following a brief stint researching in New South Wales, Australia, Mathew returned to Cambridge in 2016 to take up a Junior Research Fellowship at Christ’s College, and works with Dr. Ragnhildur Thóra Káradóttir in the Stem Cell Institute, and Dr. Steven F. Lee in the Department of Chemistry. His research involves developing and using super-resolution microscopy techniques to understand the role of white matter in brain function, and in Alzheimer’s disease.
