Rev. Don Matthys S.J.

Professor Emeritus

Father Matthys received his master's degree from the University of Pennsylvania and his doctorate from Washington University in St. Louis. He taught at Marquette for almost 40 years!

His research is on optical methods of full field measurement, involving the use of optical techniques to measure material properties of stress and strain in structural elements. He has also worked with panoramic lensing systems to specify the three dimension coordinates of objects in space, and to study the deformation of the inner surfaces of pipes and cylinders.
