Academic Profile

Dr Keck Voon LING is an Associate Professor at Nanyang Technological University (NTU). He was previously Deputy Head of the Control and Automation Division (2006-2008) at the School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, NTU, and was concurrently Programme Manager of A*STAR Embedded and Hybrid Systems II (EHS-II) Research Programme (2006-2010) where he oversaw R&D efforts in Body Sensor Networks for Healthcare Applications. In 2010, Dr LING chaired the International Conference on Body Sensor Networks that was held in Singapore. He was in the organising committee, served as Financial Chair, of the 2018 IEEE International Conference on Intelligent Rail Transportation.

Dr LING has also jointly held multiple research appointments in both local and overseas universities. He was a visiting researcher at the Department of Engineering, University of Cambridge in 2001 and 2006. He was appointed as a senior scientist at the Singapore Institute of Manufacturing Technology (SIMTech) from 2005 to 2010. In 2016, he was a visiting by-fellow at Churchill College, Cambridge University.

Dr LING’s research interests include Model Predictive Control, Receding Horizon Estimation, and their embedded implementation on reconfigurable computing platforms and applications. In recent years, his focus is on applying his research in control and estimation to multi-band GNSS software receiver, navigation and positioning applications, as well as smart grid and power systems applications.

Dr LING obtained a BEng (First Class) in Electrical Engineering from the National University of Singapore in 1988 and a DPhil in Control Engineering at Oxford University in 1992. He was awarded the Commonwealth Fellowship by the Association of Commonwealth Universities in 2001 and the Tan Chin Tuan Fellowship by NTU in 2006.
