Kedi Xu received his Ph.D. degree in Biomedical Engineering from Zhejiang University in 2010, where he studied quantitative physiological analysis of cardiovascular and nervous system. Shortly thereafter, he received his postdoctoral training in the School of Pharmacology at University of Wisconsin-Madison, where his main focus was on designing artificial skin based on photo-crosslink injectable hydrogel material. In September 2012, he joined QAAS to investigate Brain-Machine interface, with main interests in neural feedback technology based on electrical and optical microstimulation, neuronchip technology for neural circuits research.
