About Anabela M Maia

My main research interest focuses on functional and ecological morphology. I have chosen to work with locomotion, concentrating on the aquatic realm. I use functional morphology to elucidate the evolution of locomotion mechanics. I am particularly interested in the role of fins and other control surfaces during unsteady locomotion. I employ techniques that enable three dimensional conformation analyses of fins and fluid dynamics. In addition, I am also interested in the physiology and function of the musculoskeletal system and in material properties of fish appendages.
