Julian K.A. Langowski is a postdoctoral researcher at the Experimental Zoology Group (EZO) at Wageningen University & Research (WUR), The Netherlands. for his PhD, he studied the complex attachment system of tree frogs. Currently, he works on the fundamentals of soft biological gripping systems, and the biomimetic potential of these systems for the development of bioinspired soft robots (dutchsoftrobotics.nl). Julian's research interests include biomimetics, bioadhesion, and biomechanics.
