Congratulations to Hamid on accepting a faculty position at Lawrence Tech. in Michigan. Hamid will start there in August.

Welcome to our iTeam members: Zach, Diana, Molly, Maddie, Ian and KJ, who are joining the lab for the summer to work on bat flight and bio-inspired robotics.


Kenny Breuer with Jonah Hill, Miles Teller and our Robotic Bat on Spanish TV – El hormiguero!

No – thats not Kenny, thats Jonah Hill and Miles Teller, admiring a pair of Rousettus bats. Kenny and his collaborator, Soon-Jo Chung (of Caltech) were in Spain, appearing on the Spanish variety show – El hormiguero (“the anthill”) talking about our collaborative NSF project on bat flight and bio-inspired robotic bats.  Oh yeah, Jonah Hill and Miles Teller were there too!

Congratulations, Farewell and Welcome!
