    Can timing urination of an elephant and a human impact engineering? David Hu talks about animals – more specifically, how we can solve complex human problems by studying animal functions. How exactly do snakes move without legs? How can some spiders seemingly walk on water? These answers can inform how we engineer new technologies.

    Hu is an Associate Professor of Mechanical Engineering and Biology (as well as an Adjunct Associate Professor of Physics) in Georgia Tech's George W. Woodruff School of Mechanical Engineering. Hu leads the Hu Biolocomotion Lab at Georgia Tech.
