Matthias Ruhl

I graduated from the theory group of MIT's Laboratory for Computer Science in September 2003. I was a research scientist at Google from 2004 to 2013. After that, I co-founded a startup called Accompany, which was acquired by Cisco in May 2018.

My research interests are broadly in algorithms and complexity theory, especially for problems that have practical applications. I have worked on problems in peer-to-peer networks, massive data set computations, multi-processor scheduling, network design, and many other areas.

Before coming to MIT, I was a student at the University of Freiburg in Germany from October 1993 until April 1998. I double majored in Mathematics and Computer Science, receiving masters degrees in both subjects.
