## Tutor: Matt Lukacs

After graduating from the University of York with a First-class MPhys in Theoretical Physics in 2016, Matt joined the accountancy firm KPMG to begin a career in finance. He had a change of heart and decided to study for his PhD in nuclear fusion at Imperial College London, investigating the safety analysis of commercial fusion power stations.

Matt headed various seminars during his time at university and volunteered at weekly sessions to help younger students tackle weekly problems. Matt believes that anyone can solve complex problems if they’re explained in the right way. His passion for the subjects he teaches can be seen in his approach to lessons, not simply repeating facts but allowing a deeper understanding and hopefully enjoyment of the subjects.
