"MATLAB R2020b Update 3 and later are supported on Apple silicon Macs through the Rosetta 2 translation environment. Earlier releases of MATLAB may run but are not fully supported. "
So the answer is probably no.

2016b and 2018a work on M1. Terribly slow graphics and the applications consume a lot of energy even sitting idle (as reported by OS energy monitor) .
