|Alternative names||Sev, Matt|
Sevadus, also known by his personal name Matthew "Matt" Zagursky, is an American Let's Play commentator, livestreamer, an active member of Mindcrack, and the CEO and founder of N3RDFUSION. Sev initially joined the CrackPack server as a guest in May 2014, later joining the vanilla server in July 2014. His former Minecraft username was sevadus.
Sevadus graduated with his bachelor's degree from the University of Maryland in 2009, and received his master's degree from the University of Hawaii in 2012. The title of his thesis topic is "Recovering the Structure and Cosmic Flow of the Local Universe via Peculiar Velocities". He is currently working on his PhD there.  He shows a great interest in Astrophysics.
During his time at Maryland, Sevadus was a contributing author to a paper titled "Kinematic and Photometric Evidence for a Bar in NGC 2683". In the paper, Sevadus and his co-authors presented evidence that the galaxy NGC 2683 is actually a barred spiral galaxy, something that is not easily discerned visibly. Their work is cited in the galaxy's Wikipedia article.
