Matthew Kaharudin
Research Specialist, Center for Healthy Minds

As a Research Specialist, Matthew aids in the design, execution and analysis of research studies investigating ways to promote well-being at CHM.

An avid meditator, Matthew has been meditating for five years ever since his first meditation retreat in 2018. Experiencing a life transformation as a result of the practice, Matthew dedicates his time to learning more about contemplative practices, with aspirations to attend graduate school and continue to shine a light on the practice of meditation.

Outside of the lab, Matthew has taught a student-led Mindfulness class during his time as a student at UC Berkeley; he can also be found around the area as a portrait photographer specializing in wedding and graduation photography.
