Research interests

Agile Manoeuvring and Control with Morphing Wings

My research follows a number of themes:

1. Developing methods to make accurate measurements of a birds flight path; Recording control inputs and the body response, in lieu of a controlled environment

2. Progressing the modelling of the kinematics of bird flight with a focus on manoeuvres that have been traditionally difficult to study in a laboratory

3. Improving the flight performance of small scale UAV's using bio-inspired design
