Matthew Scotch is Associate professor in the Department of Biomedical Informatics and Assistant Director of the Biodesign Center for Environmental Health Engineering at Arizona State University. His research focuses on the theory and application of phylogeography to study the migration of zoonotic RNA viruses with a particular interest in influenza A viruses. Work in his lab includes the integration, analysis, and presentation of viral genetics for public health/animal health surveillance.

His lab group is also interested in the molecular epidemiology of zoonotic viruses including the amplification and sequencing of influenza A genes for studying spread among avian and human hosts.
