Dr. Jiaqi Huang works in biohybrid robotic system based on insect vision in Krapp Lab. The goal is to build a brain machine interface on a robot, to implement course control and collision avoidance, by using lobula plate tengential cells in the visual contex of the blowfly (Calliphora vicina). In addition, he is also doing research in multisensory integration on a mobile extracellular neuron recording platform.

Dr. Huang completed his MSc in Electrical Engineering in Newcastle University in UK in 2006. Worked as a design engineer in automobile industry for 3 years. And starting his PhD in Imperial College London from 2009.

The publications can be found on his Google Scholar page.
