Marquette University’s GasDay Project is seeking Graduate Research Assistants interested in graduate programs at Marquette University’s College of Engineering and in working with us on the GasDay Project.
At Marquette’s GasDay Lab we do research in system identification, time series signal processing, filtering, mathematical and statistical modeling, data mining, and forecasting, including ensemble (consensus, combining) forecasting. We leverage knowledge from mathematics, statistics, computer science, and economics in addition to traditional electrical and computer engineering fields of controls, signal processing, machine learning, and artificial intelligence. We apply our research in the natural gas distribution and transmission industries. The GasDay Project is funded by about 30 industrial companies, so you will work closely with representatives in industry. Therefore, we require students who are fluent in English. More information.
