About Me

Hello, my name is Michael Meisel. I completed my Ph.D. in computer science at the University of California, Los Angeles in 2011. You can find my dissertation/thesis here (slides here). I worked in the Internet Research Lab under Professor Lixia Zhang. I am currently Chief Architect at ThousandEyes. I previously served as Senior Software Engineer for Inveneo, a non-profit that develops and deploys information and communications technology for rural and remote areas in the developing world. (Read more here.) I recieved my B.A. in computer science from UC Berkeley in 2003, where I did some work for the Neural Theory of Language project.

Teaching

I was the teaching assistant for CS 118 (Computer Network Fundamentals) in the Winter quarter of 2009.
