We are a multidisciplinary research group spanning across
mechanical/aerospace engineering with expertise in biological sciences as
well. One of the central themes of the group includes seeking inspiration
from nature by trying to understand the salient design and locomotion
strategies of biological systems (birds, insects and fish) and use those as
prototypical or inspired solutions for artificial platforms.
PhD students in our group will gain exposure and training in both
experimental and computational techniques relating to various
sub-disciplines including flight-control, neurobiology, fluid mechanics,
etc. We are currently looking for students with various backgrounds
including mechanical and aerospace engineering, computer science and
physics. Students with background in neurobiology and field ecology training
may also be considered subject to meeting pre-requisites.
