I am a postdoctoral fellow at the University of California, San Diego in the laboratory of Nicholas Gravish. My research focuses on understanding animal locomotion in natural environments. I’m currently using a data-driven, deep-learning approach to explore¬†variability in ant walking and mechanisms for adjusting walking patterns while on uneven ground.¬† As a Ph.D. student in the lab of Andrew Biewener at Harvard University, my research combined field-based videography with laboratory-based engineering approaches to understand how birds swim underwater using their feet.
