Jacob T. Robinson

Assistant Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering.  Assistant Professor of Bioengineering.

RESEARCH SUMMARY

Neural circuit behavior using nanofabricated devices along with optical, genetic, and electrophysiological techniques.

BRIEF BIO

Jacob Robinson received a BS in Physics from UCLA in 2003 and a PhD in Applied Physics from Cornell University in 2008. After completing his PhD studying silicon nanophotonics he began postdoctoral research in the department of Chemistry and Chemical Biology at Harvard University. While at Harvard, Jacob developed silicon nanowire devices to probe the electrical and chemical activity of living cells, and in the summer of 2012 he joined the ECE and BioE departments at Rice. He is currently interested in developing nanofabricated devices to study the structural and functional dynamics of living neural circuits.
