Kalech, Meir


Short bio: I finished  my Ph.D. in the Computer Science Department at Bar-Ilan University in 2006. My advisor was Gal A. Kaminka. The topic of my Ph.D. thesis was "Diagnosing multi-Agent Systems". In my thesis I implemented ideas from Model-Based Diagnosis in Multi-Agent Systems. You can find out an abstract of my  Ph.D. here. In 2007 I was a postdoctoral fellow at the lab of Sarit Kraus and Gal Kaminka working  on a joint project with Samsung Telecom Research Israel: developing practical  voting procedures to reduce communication. Then in 2008 I had a postdoctoral  position at the AI Research  group (part of the Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Sciences),  working with Prof. Barbara Grosz.
                    From 2008 I am a faculty member in the Department of Information System Engineering in Ben-Gurion University of the Negev. My research interests lie in artificial intelligence and specifically in anomaly detection and diagnosis. Especially I am expert in model-based diagnosis (MBD) and published dozens papers in leading journals and refereed conferences. I have established the Anomaly Detection and Diagnosis Laboratory at Ben-Gurion University, which promotes research with the government and companies as General Motors and Israel Aircraft Industries.
