Research and Teaching Interests

I am interested in the mechanisms that shape locomotor strategies in animals, and how proximate (e.g., traversing different environments) and longer-term (e.g., aging, disease) perturbations may affect performance. My past research has investigated the interplay of substrate and locomotion in a variety of vertebrates, including lungfish, rodents, and ferrets. Currently, my focus is on muscle function in small mammals. Although small mammals such as rats and mice have frequently been used as research models, the integrated in vivo function of muscles and tendons in crouched mammals is still not well understood.
