I am a comparative ecophysiologist who uses the study of form and function to understand the higher-level processes of ecology, evolution, and behavior across a range of organisms. My research combines high-throughput automated video tracking, bio-logging, and aerodynamic, hydrodynamic, and ecological modeling to study animal locomotion in its larger context. My work focuses on movement and maneuvering performance in natural and laboratory settings with the scope of understanding the underlying physiological and physical principles that make this critical life function possible.
