Dr Beshoy Agayby

Beshoy is a Postdoctoral Research Associate on the EPSRC/MRC Close-NIT funded project and is developing closed-loop auditory stimulation and wireless electrophysiology systems in free-moving marmosets with the Imperial College London Bioengineering team.

Beshoy is an engineer who has a background in electronics and biomedical engineering with a PhD in neuroscience. He has over 6 years of experience in neural modulation and recording/analysing neural signals. During his PhD and Postdoc work, he used electrophysiology and optogenetics to examine the NHP brain circuits in vivo with a laminar resolution. This work has been motivated by the potential of optogenetics as a neuromodulation technique and the goal of developing tools for translational purposes. Additionally, Beshoy has been developing in-cage tools that enable training and obtaining behavioural data from large and small NHPs using touch screens and small single-board computers.
