My Drexel RET Fellowship research has taken place in the Laboratory for Biological Systems Analysis where I help create biologically inspired robots with Dr. James Tangoria, Jonah Gottlieb and Christopher J Esposito. The goal of this research is to better understand the Bluegill sunfish and to use what we learn about the fish’s propulsion to develop an Autonomous Undersea Vehicle (AUV).

     My project has been the development and testing of fin rays for the pectoral fin so that they can curl while moving on two existing axes and developing a modular fin ray base. A modular fin ray base will make changing out multiple fin rays easier and less time consuming.
