At Ben Gurion University, Dan Eshel studied the metachronal wave in ciliary tissues. With a Rothschild Postdoctoral Fellowship he moved to Caltech, where he conducted theoretical analyses of sperm motility at the laboratory of Charles Brokaw. In 1987 he moved to the University of Hawaii to work with Ian Gibbons on the mechanical properties of sperm flagella and later was appointed as an assistant researcher at the Pacific Biomedical Research Center in Honolulu to initiate a study on the yeast cytoplasmic dynein. In 1993 Eshel moved to New York, where he is professor of biology at Brooklyn College.
