Research Interests

My goal is to discover the fundamental principles governing the mechanics and energetics of locomotion in humans and other animals.  I am interested in how animals move, and why they move the way they do.  My research foci include: the in vivo mechanical function of muscle; the biomechanical determinants of locomotor energy cost; and locomotor optimization.
