Hunter Storaci has a background in both computer and biomedical engineering and was recruited to join the Steadman Philippon Research Institute (SPRI) in 2017. He has a passion for research and using his engineering skillset to study problems that will directly impact clinical outcomes. He is excited to be a part of the SPRI team and take advantage of the unique opportunity that this environment provides to interface directly with clinicians and see his work come to life in the clinic through improvements in the lives of patients. As a Research Engineer for the BioMedical Engineering department, he focuses on mechanical testing and cadaveric biomechanics.
Hunter earned his Bachelor of Science degree in Computer Engineering from the University of Wyoming and was awarded the department’s honor book from the Electrical and Computer Engineering faculty as the top graduating senior. He was also named the 2013 Computer Engineer of the Year by the Wyoming Engineering Society. He earned his Master of Science in Biomedical Engineering from Texas A&M University. His thesis work was primarily focused on developing a software platform to synchronize methods of custom-analyzing motion capture data utilized by researchers in his lab. He also has experience in motion capture, kinetic and kinematic analysis of human movement, device fabrication, and the mechanical testing of biologic materials.
In his free time, Hunter enjoys spending time with his family, snowboarding, fly-fishing, playing volleyball, and taking advantage of all the opportunities that the Rocky Mountains provide. He was born and raised in Colorado and could not be more excited to be back home.
