NIJ Graduate Research Fellow
University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign

Matthew Go is currently completing his Ph.D. in Biological Anthropology at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Matthew has also worked as a forensic anthropologist with the Department of Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency, helping to identify the remains of service members from past U.S. conflicts overseas. The NIJ GRF is an incredibly prestigious award within the forensic science community, and I am honored to be a recipient, he says. Aside from financial relief, the award provides validation to the quality of my work, which my peers and employers have recognized. Because of the collaborations, presentations, and publications that have benefitted from NIJ backing, I have gained professional credibility as a forensic anthropology researcher and practitioner.
