Michael Pollard Instructor Bio:
Michael Pollard began his studies at the University of Victoria in the Geology department, but gravitated towards the arts and graduated with a  B.A. in Sociology. Since graduating, Michael has developed an interest in literature and philosophy, but has recently rekindled his fascination with science in an attempt to bridge the gap between ‘the two cultures’ in his own mind. Setting himself the task of reading up on biomechanics and biomimicry, and presenting on it is a part of that effort.
