Matthew Fetzer

Research and Events Assistant

I joined Reform as a Research and Events Assistant in 2020 with a strong interest in digital transformation in public services, and issues surrounding cybersecurity. My role requires me to support the research as well as the communications and event delivery teams. From writing literature reviews to helping make sure Reform’s voice is heard, no two days are the same.

My interest in the issues surrounding technology and politics came from my Master’s in International Politics at SOAS, University of London. Here, I explored how cyberspace is transforming the way we understand political decision making.  Specifically, I wrote my thesis on the rise of cyberwarfare, and how we are witnessing a complete revolution in military affairs in real-time between the United States and Iran. I have also been a content writer in the digital marketing space, producing short informative guides to help consumers save money on their energy bills.

Outside of work you will most likely find me talking about Oxford United, the New England Patriots, or how underrated Clissold Park is.

Areas of Interest

  • Digital Transformation
  • Ethical Artificial Intelligence in the Public Sector
  • Social Housing

My favourite Reformer is… Nye Bevan, for creating the National Health Service.

What gets you out of bed in the morning? Welcoming the likes of West Ham and Leeds United to the Kassam next year, a stadium with only three sides.
