Introducing Students to Interdisciplinary Study

I am interested in developing courses like Comparative Biomechanics or Biological Modeling of Physical Systems. In a comparative biomechanics course, I would focus on morphological diversity and how anatomy evolved across the tree of life to serve specific biomechanical functions. We would learn methods adapted from mechanical and structural engineering to explore questions such as statics, dynamics, and mechanics of materials and apply these methods to understanding swimming, feeding, flying, and other behaviors. This would be an activity-based course where students would learn these methods firsthand. In a biological modeling course, I would introduce students to methods in modeling biological systems from developing physical models from open-source CT scans to computational models of skeletal systems and locomotion to bioinspired robotics. This course would culminate in an independent student design project, allowing students to actively employ the scientific method from hypothesis testing to presentation of results.
