Matthew Perron

Computer Science PhD Student in the MIT Database Group

About Me

I am a Computer Science PhD student in the Database Group at MIT advised by Sam Madden. I'm interested in making databases cheaper, faster, and easier to use through the unique capabilites of cloud environments. I am also insterested in data anlytics generally, specifically query optimization. Before starting at MIT, I worked with Andy Pavlo as a Master's student at Carnegie Mellon. Before that, I built systems for SoftBank in Tokyo.

Outside of work I enjoy rowing, watching movies, and reading.
