“What’s Matt Amodio”? Hi! I’m a Ph.D. student at Yale in computer science, currently living out my dream on “Jeopardy!” I’ve followed “Jeopardy!” since before I can remember, with my parents watching the show every day and me in the background.
Trivia has always mattered to me, because in a broader sense knowledge matters to me. I had instilled in me a love of learning from my parents, and I have carried that with me everywhere I go. I get a lot of joy out of learning things, any things, about the world. I am fortunate enough to have the opportunity to go on a show that values that quality and rewards it.
