Travis Tune is a Research Scientist in Dr. Tom Daniel’s lab in Biology at the University of Washinton, Seattle. His research focuses on multiscale muscle mechanics, combining mechanical whole muscle experiments with time-resolved x-ray diffraction measurements and spatially explicit modeling of muscle rate kinetics. His PhD thesis was advised by Dr. Simon Sponberg and connected the geometry of muscle sarcomeres (the subcellular contractile unit of muscle) with whole muscle mechanics. Currently he is using Machine Learning methods to relate high dimensional stochastic models with experimental data.
Travis received his B.S. in Physics from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville in 2012, and a PhD in Physics from the Georgia Institute of Technology in 2020.
