Matt Broadway received his B.S. from Auburn University in Wildlife Science before a nearly three-year stint as a traveling research technician. During that time, he worked for NGOs, federal agencies, and universities conducting field research on game, as well as threatened and endangered species. Throughout his research career, he had the pleasure of working in mountain alpine, shrub-steppe, long-leaf pine, grassland, and forest ecosystems. The bulk of his work has focused on North American grouse ecology. He eventually studied Greater Prairie-Chicken demographics in agricultural landscapes at the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point where he completed his M.S. in Wildlife Ecology. Afterwards, he spent time as a researcher for Tall Timbers Land Conservancy and Research Station where he worked on projects investigating small mammal and bobwhite quail population ecology. Thereafter, he accepted his current position with the Indiana Department of Natural Resources in the Division of Fish and Wildlife as the state small game research biologist.
