Kimutai defended his thesis entitled: An IoT-made Tea Fermentation Detection Model Based on Deep Learning & Majority Voting Techniques.

Kimutai, one of 10 PhD students making the second cohort, attributes his success to the support from the Centre and the supervisory team which was very eager to see him moving forward. “I enjoyed the support I was given by the Centre mainly the given exchange opportunities to big institutions.”, he noted.

Gibson, who becomes the first to defend the final thesis attributes this success to the flexible supervisory team he had. “From the begining when I got supervisors, it was an intensive work”, he said.

“I had to meet them several times and had to provide a report of what I have been doing at the end of every three months. Briefly my supervisors were very flexible and ready to provide positive feedback any time I need them”, he added.

Kimutai commended all partners who have made his journey a success.
