    Feeding efficiency of sunbirds and comparisons with other nectar-feeding birds

    David studies the convergent evolution of nectar-feeding birds through the lens of biomechanics and ecology. He combines his background in mechanical engineering and robotics with his studies of birds in the field to discover the fundamental physical interactions (biomechanics) of animals.

    Seafaring with Added Cargo: Simulations of Swimming Blue Blubber Jellyfish with Prominent Oral Arms

    The research I have been working on involves creating numerical simulations of blue blubber jellyfish swimming to explore how the morphology of the blue blubber’s oral arms affect their swimming kinematics. Blue Blubber Jellyfish are of interest because they have large prominent oral arms, fast staccato-like pulsing, and high relative swimming efficiency.

    Control Theory Analysis of Rice Root Response to Frequency-Dependent Environmental Stimuli

    I am a Robotics PhD Student at the Georgia Institute of Technology, and my research leverages techniques from robotics and control theory to characterize how plant roots use environmental stimuli to navigate complex environments. I would like to dedicate this award to my late mentor and colleague Dr. Philip Benfey, whose enthusiasm and curiosity for plant biology continue to inspire my work in botany every day

About

The mission of the Society for Integrative and Comparative Biology (SICB) is to foster research, education, public awareness and understanding of living organisms from molecules and cells to ecology and evolution. SICB encourages interdisciplinary cooperative research that integrates across scales, and new models and methodologies to enhance research and education. SICB is committed to Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Justice (DEIJ) as an organizing and guiding principle at every level of the society.
