Current Research
I am currently investigating the biomechanical behavior of mammalian bone to determine the functional
significance of its structural organization in various mammalian groups. Mammals of varying sizes (from mice
to whales) and modes of locomotion (terrestrial tetrapod, marine and aquatic tetrapod swimmers, flying and
gliding mammals) will be explored in a comparative context to determine how both the micro- and
macroscopic structure of bone influence the mechanical capabilities of these organisms.


Thesis Research
For my doctoral thesis I used basic biomechanical principals to study blunt force trauma resulting from vessel
collisions with North Atlantic right whales. I analyzed necropsy data to determine injuries seen in right whales
struck by vessels and based on those data I focused on mandibular fracture as a fatal endpoint for collisions.
Computed tomography (CT) and mechanical testing were used to determine the material and mechanical
properties of the right whale jaw. The jaw was used as a model bone in finite element analyses to see how
bones respond to applied stress during a collision. These data will be used to predict whether speed
restrictions will reduce the incidence of fractures and thereby mortality resulting from collisions.
