Chang Wei Tan

Research Fellow @ Monash University

I am a Research Fellow at the Faculty of Information Technology, Monash University. My research focuses on machine learning and time series analysis.

I completed my PhD at the Faculty of Information Technology, Monash University, under the supervision of Professor Geoff Webb, Dr François Petitjean and Dr Paul Reichl. My thesis titled “Time series classification at scale” focused on Scalable Time Series Classification, where I develop faster algorithms to handle large time series datasets. I have also applied time series analysis to improve railway track maintenance in collaboration with the Institute of Railway Technology at Monash University.
