Mr. Ross Turner is an Associate Scientist at Explico. As a Scientist, Mr. Turner applies biomechanical analysis to real-world accidents. He conducts inspections using state-of-the-art technologies to gather data and evidence. He performs detailed review and synthesis of case-related material. He performs biomechanical calculations and simulations, as well as advanced biomechanical testing and experimentation. Mr. Turner also uses communication and presentation skills to communicate with other engineers, principals, and clients.
Mr. Turner earned his Bachelors of Science in Biomedical Engineering from the University of South Florida in Tampa, Florida. During his senior capstone project, Mr. Turner and his group designed and developed a medical equipment tracker from concept to production-ready prototype. This device will greatly reduce healthcare spending by allowing real-time location of expensive assets, improving company efficiency and reducing the bottom line. Mr. Turner and his team won first place at the 2023 Florida Blue Health Innovation Challenge with their product.
During his undergraduate studies, Mr. Turner was involved in several research experiences. He worked with the Center for Assistive, Rehabilitation and Robotics Technologies to develop a driving simulation to help people with autism learn to drive. He presented his research and propositions at the USF Undergraduate Research Conference. He also worked with SOFWERX, a non-profit partnered with USSOCCOM, performing rapid prototyping on an autonomous Dahlander motor and an underwater breathing apparatus.
