Collecting bees from the hive

Studying how mosquitoes are affected by a swishing mammal tail

I am a PhD student in Mechanical Engineering at Georgia Tech interested in studying the fluid mechanics used by living organisms to survive in and maniulate their environments. I began studying honey bees as an undergraduate student and have continued my research into grad school.

Currently I am interested in studying how honey bees collect and transport pollen during the pollination process. I also study how mammals use their tails to deter biting insects from landing.
