Janne Pfeiffenberger, Ph.D.
- Ph.D. Temple University
Janne A. Pfeiffenberger, Ph.D. (Temple University) is a biomechanist and functional morphologist studying the underlying biomechanics of terrestrial and aquatic locomotion. His particular interest lies in the biomechanical functions of legs, fins, and other locomotor structures, as well as the locomotor control mechanisms that allow animals to perform locomotor functions in nature. Prior to joining the Faculty at Barry University, Dr. Pfeiffenberger was an IRACDA Postdoctoral Fellow at Tufts University, studying the mechanical properties of fish swimming. Dr. Pfeiffenberger’s research is not focused on a particular species, however he is quite fond of Fish and Reptiles, and welcomes undergraduates interested in biomechanical research on almost any species.
