Michael Segal (Hebrew? ; Russian: , born 1972 in Kishinev, USSR) is a Professor of Communication Systems Engineering at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev, known for his work in ad-hoc and sensor networks.

After completing his undergraduate studies at Ben-Gurion University in 1994, Segal received a Ph.D. in Mathematics and Computer Science from Ben-Gurion University in 2000 under the supervision of Klara Kedem. The topic of his PhD Dissertation was: Covering point sets and accompanying problems.[1]

After continuing his studies with David G. Kirkpatrick at University of British Columbia,[2] and Pacific Institute for the Mathematical Studies [3] he joined the faculty at Ben-Gurion University in 2000, where he also served as the head of the Communication Systems Engineering department between 2005-2010. He is known (equally with his coauthors) for being first to analyze the analytical performance of the well-known Least Cluster Change (LCC) algorithm that is widely used in ad hoc networks for re-clustering in order to reduce the number of modifications.[4] He also was one of the first to introduce and analyze the construction of multi-criteria spanners for ad hoc networks.

Segal has published over 160 scientific papers and was a recipient of the Toronto Prize for Research in 2010.[5] He is serving as the Editor-in-Chief[6][7] for the Journal of Computer and System Sciences. Along with his Ben-Gurion University professorship, he also is visiting professor at Cambridge University.
