Walking and running are common every day movements which we often take for granted but have you ever thought about why you can’t go faster or what’s changed since you were a toddler?

This talk will cover everything from why you can’t run as fast as a cheetah to whether it’s better to walk more like a horse or more like a hippo.

Dr Zoe Davies is a biomechanics researcher at the Royal Veterinary College, investigating human and animal movement. Zoe studies the physics behind walking, running and jumping to see how nature’s athletes can inspire improvements in rehabilitation practice as well as new robotics and prosthetics.
