Anthony Lapsansky

Dr. Anthony ‘Tony’ Lapsansky is a postdoctoral fellow at the University of British Columbia. Prior to becoming a Michael Smith Health Research BC Research Trainee awardee, he served as a US National Science postdoctoral fellow. After obtaining his PhD in organismal biology, ecology, and evolution from the University of Montana, he has focused on the neural control of movement across animals. His PhD explored the evolution and biomechanics of a complex form of locomotion in birds – underwater diving. Now, he is investigating the brain’s role in controlling movement in complex environments, more broadly, leveraging his expertise by using birds as a model system.
