Matthieu Perrin

Associate professor
at the University of Nantes
LS2N, GDD team



I am an associate professor at the University of Nantes and a member of the GDD team at LS2N. My scientific interests focus on the wide area of distributed computing, and in particular algorithms in message-passing distributed systems, including modeling of weakly consistent shared objects and messages broadcast primitives.

Previously, I was a postdoctoral researcher at Technion (Israel Institute of Technology), in Haïfa, Israël, where I worked with Hagit Attiya and then at IMDEA Software Institute, in Madrid, Spain, with Alexey Gotsman. I defended my PhD thesis in the GDD and AeLoS teams of the LINA (Laboratoire d'Informatique de Nantes Atlantique) at the University of Nantes under the supervision of Claude Jard and Achour Mostéfaoui.
