Department of Biomedical Engineering and Mechanics (MC 0219)
Dr. Socha is an organismal biomechanist studying the relationship between form and function in animals, with a broad range of projects involving locomotion, breathing and feeding. Current work focuses on gliding flight in snakes, mechanics of convection in compressible tracheal structures in insects, and dynamics of pumping in liquid feeders such as butterflies and ants. Other interests include 3D morphology using microtomography and synchrotron imaging of small animals.
On Friday, 2/17, at 4 PM there will be a BME Minor Information Session held in Hancock 100.
Are you an undergraduate looking for a biomechanics summer research experience? Look no further. Students from all around the country come here from May to July, getting hands-on experience with highly published researchers. more
