Sam Walcott joined the Department in 2011 after earning a Ph.D. in theoretical and applied mechanics from Cornell University and doing postdocs in experimental and theoretical biophysics at the University of Vermont and Johns Hopkins. His research develops models that predict large-scale biological phenomena from single molecule mechanics. One important focus of his work is muscle mechanics.
