I am currently a Postdoctoral Researcher working with Aaron Johnson. My research interests include:
The evolution of dynamic behavior capabilities in extinct tetrapods
The role of the vertebral column in dynamic behaviors in both extinct animals and robots
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 to inspire robotic design
