Collective behavior, bio-inspired robotics, hydrodynamic interactions, agent-based modeling
I am a principal investigator (PI) in the Couzin lab at the Max Planck Institute of Animal Behavior, Konstanz, Germany. I study collective motion in fish school by artificial tools, including robotic fish and virtual reality technique.
During my Ph. D, I focused on design, control, modeling and optimizing of carangiform robotic fish. Based on the robotic fish platform, energy saving mechanism in collective motion in fish school was systematically explored in both spatial and time scales. I will continue to test this hypothesis in the real fish system and explore further mechanisms in collective motion in fish school by projecting controllable virtual fish.
