JamieMathewsProfessor Jaymie Matthews teaches at the University of British Columbia. His passion for astronomy led him to obtain a doctorate in astrophysics from the University of Western Ontario in 1987. As principal investigator of the MOST project, he divides his time between the mission of this new Canadian space exploration satellite, his students, and a number of committees. Matthews is convinced that Canada’s strength lies in its ability to design innovative, low-cost microsatellites. His interest in astronomy is stronger than ever after theMOST¬†findings.
