Dr. Yacine Chakhchoukh
Member of the Signal Processing Group at the Institute of Telecommunications, TU Darmstadt.
Yacine received the engineering degree from Ecole Polytechnique d'Alger, Algiers, in 2004 and the M.S degree in automatics and signal processing from Paris Sud XI university/ Supélec, Paris, 2005. For his master project, he worked on security analysis of a “cyberthosis” for performing therapeutic treatments on paraplegics. This work was done at robotics systems laboratory at EPFL, Lausanne. From June 2006 to September 2009, he pursued his Ph.D. in Statistical Signal Processing and Load Forecasting at Gestionnaire du Réseau de Transport d'Electricité (RTE, the French transmission system operator) and the Laboratoire des signaux et systèmes, CNRS-Supélec-Université de Paris Sud XI. His work research consisted in developing robust methods and procedures for short-term load forecasting in France.
ResearchWhile working towards his PhD, his research was in robust statistical signal processing techniques and its applications, specifically to time series problems with correlated data and short-term load forecasting for power supply.
Currently, he is working on robust estimation problems in communications, e.g., as described in this project. Additionally, he works on robust estimation problems in biomedical applications.
