Kyle is a biomechanics research technician and MRes graduate student in the Structure & Motion Laboratory
In May 2013, Kyle obtained his BSc in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Virginia. While at UVA Kyle performed research in the Multiscale Muscle Mechanics Lab, supervised by Silvia Blemker, where he studied the biomechanics of Batoid rays.
In September 2013, Kyle came to the RVC Structure & Motion Laboratory to take his current position as biomechanics research technician, supervised by John Hutchinson. Kyle is assisting with research on the evolutionary biomechanics of sesamoid bones in vertebrate limbs.
In October 2013, Kyle also began an MRes researching the sesamoid bones in ostrich knees to better understand the mechanical stimuli behind sesamoid development.
