Matt Picha began teaching Anatomy and Physiology at SVC in January 2015. Prior to SVC he taught at Everett Community College for three years. He earned a B.S. in Animal Science from Washington State University in 2000 and a PhD in Physiology from North Carolina State University in 2007. Following his PhD, Matt completed a post-doctoral fellowship at the University of Texas Marine Science Institute researching the hormonal control of reproduction in Southern flounder, a popular but overfished recreational and commercial species in the Gulf of Mexico.  

Matt is a local guy (Bow, WA) and enjoys fishing in the San Juans, snowboarding at Baker and exploring the entire PNW. He can also be found playing shuffleboard in the Bow-Edison area.
