Matt Murphy was born in Surrey and was educated at Whitgift School in Croydon before taking a degree in Metallurgy & Materials Science at the University of Liverpool. After graduating Matt stayed on at the University and carried out research into the laser assisted deposition of powdered steels, and was awarded a PhD for this work in 1994. He then helped to establish the Liverpool Rapid Prototyping Centre and spent two years advising UK industry on the adoption and exploitation of rapid manufacturing technology. In 1996 Matt joined Pera Group in Melton Mowbray and spent three years as Head of Practice - Advanced Manufacturing: leading a team of twelve research engineers providing technical consulting and developing flexible, rapid production processes in collaboration with Europe's leading manufacturing companies. In 2000 Matt returned to the University of Liverpool to continue this work as a Senior Research Fellow.

In early 2003 Matt was employed as Manager of the UK Centre for Materials Education and he held this post until being appointed Engineering Education Development Manager at the University of Liverpool in late 2005. Matt is currently leading the University's Liverpool Engineer Project to develop enhanced degree programmes that will equip graduates with not only disciplinary knowledge and understanding, but also the skills, experience and attitudes that will underpin their future professional and personal lives. His work is divided between lecturing, curricular and pedagogic development, and schools liaison to promote the study of engineering at university.
