Liang LiLiang Li is a Project Leader of VR and Robotics in the Couzin Lab. He is fascinated by robot-inspired collective behaviour—building and applying “robotics” to generate and test hypotheses in collective animal behaviour. With the VR project, he is currently exploring the basic sensory-motor control mechanisms in schooling fish by creating virtual environments and projecting virtual robots as neighbours to transferring controllable spatiotemporal information. With the robotics project, he is currently constructing high-fidelity robotic fish, with fish-like morphology, locomotion, and movements, to interact with real fish to explore whether, and if so how, fish benefit by swimming in groups.
