Zhi Quan Zhou received the BSc degree in computer science from Peking University, China, and the PhD degree in software engineering from The University of Hong Kong. He is currently an associate professor in software engineering at the University of Wollongong, Australia. Zhou was a main contributor to some of the earliest research papers on metamorphic testing, and was one of the few pioneers who opened up and established the metamorphic testing research field. In 2016, he co-founded the ICSE International Workshop on Metamorphic Testing (MET ’16), and was an invited keynote speaker at ICSE MET ’17 and at the 2019 IEEE International Conference on Artificial Intelligence Testing. He was an ACM SIGSOFT Webinar speaker, an ICSE ’18 Technical Briefings speaker, and an ICSE ’16 and ICSE ’19 journal-first speaker.
