Jake Wolynski

PhD Candidate

Jake graduated from Colorado State University in 2017 where he received a BS in Biomedical Engineering and a BS in Mechanical Engineering.  He began assisting in the Orthopaedic Bioengineering Research Laboratory in 2015.  Jake spent the summer of 2016 as a Research Fellow in Jaipur, India where he established a finite element model to investigate the failure methods of a prosthetic foot for use in developing nations.  During the 2016-2017 school year, he worked within a small team to develop a mechatronic spinal testing apparatus for the laboratory.  This device automatically quantifies the mechanical properties of cadaveric spinal segments through a system of motors, computer programming, and motion tracking cameras.

Jake’s interests include hiking, camping, sports, traveling, and photography.
