Dan Riskin Bio | Wiki
Dan Riskin is a Canadian evolutionary biologist, television personality, and producer. He hosted the Canadian television series Daily Planet. Dan is broadly interested in the functional consequences that result from morphological diversity. Using experimental biomechanics in the lab and in the field, he seeks to understand how differences in body shape among species influence differences in performance.
Past projects. Dan has focused on the influence of body size on flight kinematics, the biomechanics of landing on a ceiling, the influence of body shape on walking ability, and other topics. His current research at the University of Toronto Mississauga is focused on the functional link between echolocation and flight. He performs his research there in collaboration with Dr. John M. Ratcliffe.
