Dissertation/thesis title: Burrowing and walking mechanisms of North American moles

Research Interests

I have broad interests in the relationships between morphology, performance and ecology. I am curious about how the performance is changed by the morphological difference so that affects animals' adaptation to varied environments. In my PhD research, I focus on the mechanism of burrowing in moles and whether the difference in performance affects their geographic distribution.
