Matthieu Bloch received the Engineering Degree from Supélec, France, and the M.S. in Electrical and Computer Engineering from Georgia Tech in 2003. In 2006, Dr. Bloch received the Ph.D. degree in Engineering Science from the Université de Franche-Comté, France, and in 2008, he received the Ph.D. degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering from Georgia Tech. Dr. Bloch spent a year as a postdoctoral research associate at the University of Notre Dame and joined the faculty at Georgia Tech in July 2009. At the start of his career, he was based at the Georgia Tech Lorraine campus in Metz, France, and in 2013, he moved to the main Georgia Tech campus in Atlanta. In January 2021, Dr. Bloch was appointed as the associate chair for ECE Graduate Affairs.
