Brief Biography

Dr Ketao Zhang is a Lecturer in Robotics within the Centre for Advanced Robotics at Queen Mary University of London (QMUL). Before his appointment at QMUL, he was a senior postdoctoral researcher in the Aerial Robotics Lab at Imperial College London. He had been a leading postdoctoral researcher at the Multifingered Robotic Hand Lab of King's College London after completing a joint PhD programme between King's College London (UK) and Beijing Jiaotong University (China). His primary research interests are design theory of novel mechanisms, multi-modal robotic systems, robotic manipulators, morphable soft-bodied robots. He has published more than 50 peer-reviewed journal and international conference papers.
