Moody Lecture Explores the Mathematics Behind Biologically Inspired Design

Anette Hosoi

Many natural systems have evolved to perform certain tasks—climbing, sensing, swimming—as perfectly as possible within the limits set by the laws of physics. This observation can be used both to guide engineering design and to gain insights into the form and function of biological systems. Massachusetts Institute of Technology Professor Anette (Peko) Hosoi explores these themes […]
