Grayson Talaski

OUR Ambassador

I work in the Department of Orthopedics and Rehabilitation within the Orthopedic Functional Imaging Research Laboratory. My research centers around applying engineering analysis techniques (MATLAB, advanced image segmentation, and biomechanical analysis) to clinical research questions. Most of my research has focused on developing clinical tools and algorithms to detect subtle/complex foot and ankle deformities.

Through research, I have been able to present podium presentations in Boston, Louisville, Long Beach, and San Francisco, with future trips to South Korea, Miami, and Vancouver this semester. Furthermore, my research spans numerous institutions, with close collaborators at Duke University, Johns Hopkins University, the University of Michigan, Hospital for Special Surgery, Harvard University, and the University of Utah. I believe this not only speaks to the high-level research at Iowa, but the collective respect that Iowa researchers carry across the country.

Outside of academics, I enjoy hanging out with friends and trying new places to eat. I also enjoy traveling and spending time with my family.
