Graduated Masters Students

Hunter Storaci

Hunter StoraciHunter graduated in May, 2017 with his Master of Science in Biomedical Engineering. His thesis work was focused on developing a software platform to synchronize methods for custom-analyzing motion capture data utilized by researchers in the BMEL. During his time in the BMEL he also gained experience in motion capture, kinetic and kinematic analysis of human movement, device fabrication, and the mechanical testing of biologic materials. He is currently working as a Research Engineer at the Steadman Philippon Research Institute in Vail, CO with a focus on clinical research that has potential to directly impact clinical outcomes.
