Matthew Jee is the Programme Manager for the UK SAF Clearing House (UK SAF CH). Reporting to the Director, Matthew is responsible for the development and day to day operational delivery of the programme.   

Matthew Jee has 15 years’ experience in managing engineering projects and programmes across multiple sectors, including aviation, Ministry of Defence, manufacturing and research. He started his career as an avionics technician in the Ministry of Defence and then took up a role in Defence Equipment & Support, managing several air launch weapon systems projects as well as an aircraft overhaul programme. 

Following a short period as a manufacturing engineer and project lead, he completed an MSc in renewable energy. 

Matthew has spent the last 4 years working for the University of Sheffield as a project and programme manager for both the Translational Energy Research Centre (TERC) and Sustainable Aviation Fuels Innovation Centre (SAF-IC). The latter sparked an interest in the development, evaluation, and qualification of jet fuels.

Working in a delivery partnership between the Department of Transport (DfT) and the Energy Institute at the University of Sheffield, the UK SAF CH aims to support industry in driving the deployment of sustainable aviation fuels by facilitating the development, evaluation, and qualification of jet fuel from sustainable sources.
