Matthias Grossglauser studied Electrical Engineering and Communication Systems at EPFL, and received a Ph.D. in Computer Science from the Université Pierre et Marie Curie (UPMC) in France. He was a scientist at the research laboratory of AT&T, a major communications provider in the US, for several years. In 2003, he was appointed assistant professor in the School of Computer and Communication Sciences at EPFL. From 2007-2010, he led the Internet Laboratory of Nokia Research Center in Helsinki, Finland. In 2011, he returned to EPFL as an associate professor, where he currently co-directs the Information and Network Dynamics laboratory. He has been named as Full Professor at EPFL in December 2020.
From 2016-2019, he served as director of the Doctoral Program in Computer and Communication Sciences at EPFL. He held visiting positions at the University of California at Berkeley and at Stanford University. He is the recipient of the 1998 Cor Baayen Award from the European Research Consortium for Informatics and Mathematics (ERCIM) and the 2006 CoNEXT/SIGCOMM Rising Star Award.

He has made several fundamental research contributions in networking, including novel approaches for the measurement and management of internet traffic (some of which have been standardized by the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF)) and methods for routing and resource allocation in large-scale mobile networks. In recent years, he has focused on data analytics, with applications in privacy, mobility, voting, and social networks.
