My lab is interested in evolutionary and comparative biomechanics.

We use biomechanics and comparative physiology/anatomy to understand how animal behaviour and evolutionary processes are constrained by functional morphology. We also use experimental techniques to see how functional morphology changes when subjected to different environmental conditions with a goal to understanding how phenotypic plasticity influences evolutionary processes.

Fields of Interest

  • Comparative and evolutionary biomechanics
  • Muscle physiology
  • Hydrodynamics
  • Fish
  • Phenotypic plasticity
  • Vertebrate evolution
