John R. Hutchinson is a biologist at the Royal Veterinary College’s Structure & Motion Lab near London. His research focuses on how animals move and how the anatomy and physics of their movements have evolved. He and his team have shown that T. rex was not a fast runner, that elephants use a unique bouncing run unlike that of other animals, and that the earliest land vertebrates probably moved more like mudskippers than like salamanders.
