Since August 2010, Matt Kelso has been the Data Manager at the Center for Healthy Environments and Communities in the Department of Environmental and Occupational Health at the University of Pittsburgh Graduate School of Public Health. In that capacity, he has been a key contributor to the project, for which he collects, analyses, and maps data related to oil and gas drilling activities, especially concerning the Marcellus Shale, in an effort to make the data more accessible and understandable for concerned individuals and organizations. He has also worked on the Pittsburgh Regional Environmental Threat Analysis project, contributing to reports on ozone (August, 2011) and particulate matter (publication pending).

From August 2009 to July 2010, Mr. Kelso served as a classroom assistant in a public charter school through AmeriCorps, helping students in the fifth through eighth grades with English and math skills in the Pittsburgh, PA area.

Prior to that, Mr. Kelso spent over four years working as an archaeologist for several cultural resources management companies, primarily in the Albuquerque, NM region. This included a variety of tasks, including excavation and survey in the field, analysis and cataloging in the laboratory, and data processing and report writing in office environments.

Mr. Kelso also worked for over a year and a half as a regulatory compliance auditor for the three Harrah’s casino properties in Stateline, NV. In this capacity, he examined cash transactions that may have lead to violations of Nevada’s Gaming Control Board Regulation 6A. Matt Kelso graduated with a BA in Anthropology from Humboldt State University in Arcata, CA in 2003, a program which included a year’s study of language and culture in Xi’an, China.
