Oceane Bel

Google Scholar link: Oceane's Google Scholar Page

Oceane recently completed her Ph.D. in CRSS/SSRC. Her current interest lies in machine learning applied to systems. She previously worked on CAPES: A Computer Automated Performance Enhancement System and Inkpack: Drive theft-resistant system with Kenneth Chang, Professor Miller, and Professor Long.

Current Research

Now she is working on Geomancy: Automated Performance Enhancement through Data Placement Optimization which will serve as part of her thesis. She developed Geomancy, a tool that automatically optimizes the placement of data within a distributed storage system by leveraging a neural network architecture that accurately forecasts future performance-based access metrics.

Additionally, she is working with Sinjoni Mukhopadhyay on WinnowML: Model-based optimized feature selection, a feature selection method for system modeling. This method ingests a neural network architecture provided by the user, examines the dataset, and automatically explores the subsets of features within a dataset to determine the best subset that optimizes accuracy and training time. This project will serve as the second part of Oceane's thesis.

She is also working with Caltech on an optimized packet routing system which will be the third part of her thesis. 

Past education:

She did her undergraduate at USC, majoring in computer engineering and computer science. During her undergraduate career, she conducted research with Stanford on how to use robotics to teach computer science to k-12 students. Additionally, she conducted research on smartwatches and voice recognition with USC.
