#1 Hummingbirds and Haptics with Rivers Ingersoll

Rivers Ingersoll, PhD, is a recent PhD in Mechanical Engineering at Stanford. His thesis focused on measuring and understanding the aerodynamic forces of hovering hummingbirds and bats. The project aimed to make animal research less invasive, increase our understandings of extreme muscle functions, and improve the design of bird inspired flying robots. We’ll be talking about his thesis and its implications, the process of getting a PhD, and ask him why you’d call him if somebody said, “Somebody Call a Doctor!”
