This fall, I will be starting a PhD at Stanford University's Hopkins Marine Station under the mentorship of Dr. Jeremy Goldbogen. For more information about my previous experience, please visit my CV.
I am broadly interested in the behavioral biomechanics of large marine vertebrates, but my previous work is eclectic and has included behavioral studies, material testing, and analyses of functional morphology on species ranging from domestic dogs to common eider ducks. Understanding how a species moves within and reacts to its local environment can give us important insights into its life history and ecology. Given our uncertain environmental future, these insights may become vital as baselines to help us protect and conserve biodiversity. Biomechanical data can also provide inspirational answers for challenging and unique engineering questions. Please visit my research page for more info.
