Crystal Reynaga
Postdoctoral Associate

Current Research Interests

The broad aim of her research focuses on how organisms overcome constraints by studying the motor control strategies, muscle properties, and kinematic basis of movement. For her dissertation she investigated how the mechanical properties of the environment may shape musculoskeletal function and the development of novel locomotor modes in frogs. As a postdoc Crystal, works on a collaborative team with Drs. Sheila Patek and Gregory Sutton (University of Lincoln, UK) to investigate the constraints of fast animal movement using experimental and musculoskeletal modeling approaches.
