In the field of animal locomotion, fast ballistic motions are always eye-catching. However, on the other end of the spectrum, slow soft body movements can be equally amazing. My research focuses on force transmission in soft-bodied animal locomotion. In particular, we use Manduca sexta caterpillar as the model system.
In response to the feedbacks and requests from recent encounters at professional conferences, I decided to start this blog as a window for people to check on my research progress. I will do my best to update new cool graphics and info about my research. Please note that this site is not intended for formal publication. I cannot post any unpublished data or engineering details. I apologize if the materials cannot satisfy your curiosity, but I promise to publish my research as fast as I can. Thanks for the interest.
