Mr. Storvik primarily conducts forensic injury biomechanics analyses of motor vehicle crashes with a specialty in high-speed rollover accidents. Steve was lead author on a recent scientific publication in the American Journal of Forensic Medicine and Pathology regarding death due to positional asphyxia in rollover collisions.
Steve's academic research in impact injury biomechanics involved investigation of human lumbar response to dynamic axial loading specifically related to military ejection seat injuries. He has co-authored scientific papers on topics involving experimental crashworthiness, computational rigid body modeling (MADYMO), 3-D motion capture (VICON), epidemiology of automotive injuries, and forensic case studies of fatal rollover crashes.
Mr. Storvik received a B.S. in Biomedical Engineering from Milwaukee School of Engineering and a M.S. in Biomedical Engineering from Marquette University where he conducted collaborative research with the Department of Neurosurgery at the Medical College of Wisconsin.
