Ke Ma is currently a PhD student in the Department of Automatic Control and Systems Engineering. He received the BSc degree in Information and Computing Science from the Ningbo Institute of Technology, Zhejiang University, China. He was exchanged to the Queen’s University of Belfast, Northern Ireland, in 2011, in a Study Abroad program in the School of Electronics, Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. He received the MSc degree (Distinction) in Control Systems from the Department of Automatic Control and Systems Engineering, University of Sheffield, in 2013.
Mr Ke Ma is conducting PhD research into 'Robot Navigation in Water Distribution Pipes' under the supervision of Dr S Anderson and Dr R P Collins in the Department of Automatic Control and Systems Engineering, University of Sheffield.
