  Field Of Study  
    His primary research interests include control of biologically inspired
robots, design of robot mechanisms, and exploration of
environment-adaptive design methodologies for search and rescue tasks.
He has made significant contributions to the design and control of
environment-adaptive robot mechanisms. To confer the advantages of
natural systems to robotic machines, he has continuously performed
studies of biological systems at biomechanical level. He has used this
knowledge to develop biologically inspired robots and
environment-adaptive machines. For example, using a snake-like robot,
Dr. Ma proposed a controller based on a neural oscillator that generates
self-induced oscillations found in the spinal cords of living animals.
He also proposed an energy-based passive creeping technique that is
based on the principle of the “dissipation-transformation-balance” of
energy. This was instrumental in overcoming the challenge faced in the
control of a large number of degrees of freedom and it allowed rapid
adaptation to environmental changes. He also introduced a self-adaptive
principle that enabled the navigation of unstructured terrains by using
a tracked robot with underactuated characteristics. His contributions
have had a significant impact on several technological challenges and
have led to the realization of robots with high mobility, low energy
consumption, and natural movement stability in complex environments.
