My name is Mickey Gabel, a Ph.D. student in the Department of Computer Science at the Technion. My advisors are Assaf Schuster and Danny Keren. I passed my candidacy exam on December 2014.

My research interests include machine learning and data mining in distributed settings with applications on systems research. I work on learning and monitoring models of large, distributed data streams. One main application is monitoring health of cloud datacenters and other large distributed systems.

I also have extensive professional background on diverse platforms and fields from my days in the industry.

Industry Experience

In past life, I was a professional software developer for 10 years.

My experience includes embedded development, computer graphics, file system and kernel development, DSP development, image processing, and more. The range of duties is similarly diverse: coding, algorithm R&D, API design, performance optimization, management roles, and project planning.
