Evgeniy Gabrilovich is a Principal Scientist at Google, specializing in Information Retrieval, Machine Learning, and Computational Linguistics, and a Senior Member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE),[1] and an ACM Distinguished Scientist. In 2010, he received the Karen Spärck Jones Award from the British Computer Society Information Retrieval Specialist Group.[2] In January 2022 Gabrilovich an ACM Fellow.[3]


In 2002, Gabrilovich published a research paper documenting the possibility of an IDN homograph attack, with fellow researcher Alex Gontmakher. In 2005, Gabrilovich earned his PhD degree in Computer Science from the Technion – Israel Institute of Technology. In his Ph.D. thesis, he developed a methodology for using large scale repositories of world knowledge, such as Wikipedia, as a basis for improvement of text representations.
