Zhou joined the ADA Research Group in September 2019 as a visiting PhD student for a period of one year. He has started his PhD in March 2017 under the supervision of dr. Gangquan Si at School of Electrical Engineering, Xi’an Jiaotong University.
In his research he focuses on time series data mining techniques, including pre-processing, representation, classification, and prediction. His work has been successfully applied to a project titled “Research of Data Mining Technique and Development of Intelligent Data Management System for Electrical Equipment”, supported by China Southern Power Grid. In this project, he tries to make full use of massive data collected from various tests and online monitoring systems, aimed at providing accurate evaluation and prediction of electrical equipment status.
Zhou is currently working on online time series segmentation with the purpose of dimension reduction, especially on how to apply Automated Machine Learning methods for this task. During his visit, he will be closely supervised by dr. Mitra Baratchi and prof. Holger Hoos.
