Functional Morphology and Biomechanics

Research

My research interests span a variety of subjects and organisms. Most of my projects revolve around functional morphology and biomechanics, describing the how of animals’ movements to understand the why of the evolution of those traits. I have interests in sensory biology, invertebrate biology, natural history, locomotion, feeding, predator-prey interactions, muscle physiology, fluid dynamics, hormones, and other aspects of biology. While I prefer mechanistic approaches to questions of evolutionary and ecological importance, I try to not to limit myself from expanding my network and skillset. Current projects are listed on separate pages, and I’m always interested in hearing from potential collaborators.
