Robert Full’s research interests include comparative physiology and biomechanics. He and his team quantify whole animal performance and address its mechanistic bases, with a focus on locomotor performance. Full seeks to expand the STEM workforce and established the i4’s Toward Tomorrow Program to provide undergraduates with an early, inspirational, and interdisciplinary experience fostering inclusive excellence. His program inspires students toward involvement, imagination, invention, and innovation (i4) by establishing culturally sustaining connections and removing artificial disciplinary boundaries within STEM fields to include designers, social scientists, and entrepreneurs collaborating in diverse teams.
