My research examines the way animals move: how their muscles and bones work together to produce motions as extraordinary as flying or as common as breathing. Specifically, I focus on the interface between the head and body: the neck. I examine its shape and record how it moves in 3D using tools like slow-motion video, x-ray images, and digital animations. The results reveal patterns in the history of animal evolution, and are also a source of inspiration for human designers who want to build moving machines or simply improve how we move our own bodies.
