I am currently a Postdoctoral Researcher working with Aaron Johnson. My research interests include:
The effects of vertebral geometry on local mechanical joint behavior during dynamic motion
The effects of changes in local joint behavior on whole physical agent behavior
The intersection of paleobiology and bio-inspired robotics.
I blend a rigorous background in evolution and anatomy with physical and computational modeling to investigate locomotion of stem tetrapods
