Frank Fish is a Professor of Biology at Westchester University, he received his BA from SUNY at Oswego and both his M.S. and Ph.D. from Michigan State University. His research focus on the energetics and hydrodynamics of vertebrate swimming, with particular regard to propulsive modes and the evolution of aquatic mammals. This research is accomplished by examination of morphological structures with computer tomography (CT scans), biomechanics with motion analysis and computer digitizing, and exercise physiology by measurement of metabolic performance with oxygen consumption. His research has been funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF), Office of Naval Research (ONR), and Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), and has applications in the field of biomimetics and bioinspiration of engineered systems.
