Liang Cao

Liang Cao is a Ph.D. student studying Chemical and Biological Engineering (CHBE) at UBC. He received his BASc and MASc in Automation/Control Engineering from Beijing University of Chemical and Technology in China. He also is a joint master student at the University of Duisburg-Essen (Germany) and a research assistant at Tsinghua University (China). His current Ph.D. research interests focus on applying machine learning techniques to historical refinery process data to build inferential sensors, extract causality, and mine sequence patterns.
