Andrew A. Biewener is the Charles P. Lyman Professor of Biology and Faculty Director of the Concord Field Station at Harvard University. His research focuses on the biomechanics and neuromuscular control of terrestrial and aerial locomotion, with relevance to biorobotics, musculoskeletal modeling, and biomedical engineering. His laboratory emphasizes in vivo methods for studying muscle function during animal movement in relation to body dynamics. This work has involved collaborations with modelers, roboticists, mechanical engineers, and computer scientists. He was Deputy Editor-in-Chief of The Journal of Experimental Biology from 2005-2021 and President of the American Society of Biomechanics 2001-2002. He is an elected AAAS Fellow, and has published over 188 research papers, trained 21 PhDs, 4 Masters and 24 post-doctoral scholars. He is the co-author of two recent textbooks (Animal Locomotion 2nd ed., 2018 Oxford Univ. Press; and How Life Works 3rd ed., 2018 Macmillan Press).
