Welcome to the lab of Eric Tytell in the Department of Biology at Tufts University.

We study the biomechanics, fluid dynamics, and neurophysiology of locomotion. Our work includes studies of how water moves around fish as they are swimming, examinations of the sensory systems that allow them to respond to changes in their environment, and research on the neural circuits that control locomotion and respond to those changes. We use experimental measurements, physical models, and computational simulations to study the feedback loops that include these systems.

Join the lab! We’re always looking for motivated undergraduate and graduate students interested in neuromechanics research. Send an email to Dr. Tytell.
