Martin Hansson

I worked as a research assistant in the Uppsala Database Lab (UDBL) at Uppsala University between 2002 and 2004, working mainly with distributed peer-to-peer databases and data integration. I have worked with MySQL server since 2006, as a member of the optimizer team. For the last three years I have been involved in the currently undergoing reengineering effort of the server, and various features involving better optimization of queries. Some feautes I have developed are optimization of multiple-column-index range queries, removal of INSERT DELAYED, and CURRENT_TIMESTAMP as default value for DATETIME columns. My day-to-day work includes working on range query optimization and the parser.
