I am a PhD student in Mechanical Engineering at Georgia Tech. I work in David Hu’s Biolocomotion Lab, and I am interested in how living organisms use fluid mechanics to survive in their environments. I began studying honey bees as an undergraduate student and have continued my research into grad school.
Currently I am interested in studying how honey bees collect and transport pollen during the pollination process. I also study how mammals use their tails to deter biting insects from landing.
After I graduate, I want to become a professor and continue studying biological systems from an engineering perspective. I specifically want to use my knowledge of fluid mechanics to discover how animals, from insects to mammals, have evolved to best survive in their environments.
