Matt Oliver

University Writing Program (UWP)

Matt Oliver began his professional life as a jet mechanic, but when the facility in Norfolk where he worked closed, he started a small business. After doing each of these jobs for approximately 10 years, he decided to return to school for an undergraduate degree and continued to complete his graduate work in 2003.

In 2003 Matt started teaching at Old Dominion University in Norfolk, Virginia, where he taught Technical Writing, Writing in The Disciplines, Business Writing, and Advanced Composition. He also served for five years as the Writing Program Administrator.

In 2014, he moved to UC Davis, where he teaches Writing in Engineering, Writing in The Sciences, Technical Writing, and Advanced Composition for the UWP. Additionally, he’s done writing and communications consulting work for the Department of Defense, Engineering contractors, and the California Department of Fish and Wildlife.
