We are a group of scientists, equipped with math skills and a lab, where we use hands-on experiments and equations to build models of intriguing phenomena in nature. Our focus is currently on modeling the behavior of living organisms (plankton in particular), and exploring novel design principles for bio-inspired robotics. Our lab is funded by NSF and ARO (see news story here).
We offer research opportunities to both undergraduate and graduate students. Please contact me for further information.
