I would suggest create a struct array:
[data.Age]=deal(28,21,32);%just to show a different syntax
ans = 28

% You can use structure array
PersonInfo(1) = struct("Name", "Peter", "Age", 28);
PersonInfo(2) = struct("Name", "Fabian", "Age", 21);
PersonInfo(3) = struct("Name", "Mary", "Age", 32);
ans = struct with fields:
Name: "Peter" Age: 28
