Liang He is an Associate Professor of Biomedical Engineering at the Department of Engineering Science, University of Oxford and a Non-Tutorial Fellow at Kellogg College. His research focuses on soft robotics, biosensors, haptic and VR, and wearable robotics. In particular, he is interested in exploring embodied-AI solutions for healthcare and biomedical applications. He obtained his PhD at Imperial College London with a focus on medical robotics. From 2017 to 2020, He has been a key researcher in the EPSRC Motion and RoboPatient projects, where he develops virtual simulators and wearables for medical training. In early 2021, he joined the Oxford Robotics Institute with the Embodied Intelligence Program to develop soft-sensing skin for robots working with humans. In 2022, he was elected co-chair of the Research Staff Forum at the MPLS Division and appointed as a member of the Research Staff Consultation Group at Oxford. He was also awarded an MPLS Enterprise and Innovation Fellowship and an Ideas2Impact Fellowship from the Saïd Business School. In 2023, he joined the Institute of Biomedical Engineering as an Associate Professor.
