Mr. Storvik received a B.S. in Biomedical Engineering from Milwaukee School of Engineering in 2008 and a M.S. in Biomedical Engineering from Marquette University in 2011. At Marquette University Steve specialized in injury biomechanics and held a joint research engineer position in the Department of Neurosurgery at the Medical College of Wisconsin (MCW). At MCW Steve worked in the full-scale vehicle crash lab and assessed injury risk in rear-end impacts by conducting sled tests using instrumented Hybrid III and THOR dummies, and designed an experimental model to assess aircraft ejection seat injury dynamics utilizing human cadaveric spines and a drop tower.
Steve has authored and co-authored scientific papers on topics involving spine injury biomechanics, vehicle crashworthiness, epidemiology of automotive injuries, and forensic case studies of fatal rollover crashes including in the American Journal of Forensic Medicine and Pathology, Journal of Biomechanical Engineering, and Traffic Injury Prevention.
Steve joined Vector Scientific, Inc. (VSI) in 2011. At VSI Steve primarily conducts forensic injury biomechanics analyses of motor vehicle crashes including over 100 high-speed rollover accidents. His case work incorporates an assessment of occupant dynamics and injury mechanisms as well as an investigation of nation-wide, population-based field data (NASS-CDS) to establish the relationship between the type and severity of a crash and the resultant injuries. This relationship quantifies metrics such as injury incidence and relative risks (e.g. belted v. unbelted condition), which helps tell the story of what happened in the subject case.
