I just returned from Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, where I gave a seminar in the Department of Mechanical Engineering. I was invited by Dr. Chen Li, who has recently started there as an assistant professor. Chen has a really vibrant lab that studies terrestrial locomotion (primarily in insects) and does bioinspired engineering as well, making robots that scurry and flip like their 6-legged relatives. Among other faculty, I also spent time with Dr. Rajat Mittal, who does computational fluid mechanics.
