Evolution of nectarivory and convergent evolution of nectarivores, biomechanics of flight and drinking, energetics.
My background is in robotics design for human rehabilitation and augmentation. I received my B.S. and M.S. in mechanical engineering with Prof. Homayoon Kazerooni at University of California Berkeley. I always loved nature and birding but began my studies in biology during my masters degree. I am currently PhD candidate in the Behavioral Ecophysics Lab with Dr. Alejandro Rico-Guevara.
