Assistant Professor Dan Goldman has won one of the Sigma Xi Young Faculty Awards given to faculty of rank no higher than assistant professor for the outstanding paper (or papers all in a single subject area) published in scholarly journals between January 1, 2008, and December 31, 2008, based on research performed at Georgia Tech. Dan’s interest focuses on the mechanics of locomotion of organisms and models of organisms as they scurry on and within matter like sand. The foot steps and body-undulations of his study subjects (lizards, crabs, cockroaches and robots) push him to understand interaction with materials which can display complex fluid and solid properties in response to perturbation.
