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 a research tech in Alejandro Rico-Guevara's lab and will begin my PhD in Biology this Fall 2020.
