Pearlson: LAE researcher and co-founder of Bow-Tie startup

June 18, 2013

MSRP Alumnus Matthew Pearlson does three things when he’s not making bow ties:

1. He is a research specialist in the MIT Department of Aeronautics and Astronautics working on renewable jet fuel for the commercial jet aviation industry.

2. He works at Citizens Energy Corporation running a project for our chairman, Joseph P. Kennedy II. The project provides solar electric systems for low-income families in Southern California’s Imperial Valley. This project helps over 100 households a year reduce their electric bill while allowing them to turn their air conditioning on in their homes.

3. He trains for long-distance running. A few years ago he ran the Boston Marathon as a “bandit,” which means he didn’t have a number but ran for fun.
