Biography

Keng received the B.Eng (Honours) first class degree in Electrical and Electronic from the University of Leicester, UK in 1998. After a period of work in industry (Hewlett Packard Ltd) supporting and developing test system for optical encoder, he returned to University of Leicester where he was awarded Scholarship to further his study in PhD research on Fault Diagnosis and Control of a Diesel Generator Using Sliding Mode Techniques. After the completion of research study, he joined Heriot-Watt University in 2003 as a post doctoral researcher, working on a research project: Design of control system for vector-controlled induction machine. In 2005, he joined Edinburgh Napier University and also hold an MBA degree.

His main research interests are in control system design (using nonlinear control technique), automation and robotic control, autonomous system, electric car, renewable energy resources, in particular control of wind turbine.

Keng delivers a number of undergraduate and postgraduate modules in the School of Engineering and the Built Environment. He is also Programme Leader for the following Postgraduate Programmes:-

MSc Energy and Environmental Engineering
MSc Renewable Engineering
MSc Automation and Control
MSc Mechanical Engineering
