About Me

Kas grew up on a ranch in northeastern Colorado. In 2013 she attended South Dakota School of Mines on a cross country and track scholarship out of high school, eventually transferring to Colorado School of Mines where she completed her BS and MS in Mechanical Engineering. Kas joined the Orthopaedic Research Group in Spring of 2021, applying her mechanical background to ankle biomechanics working with Amy Lenz, PhD. Her work focuses on Progressive Collapsing Foot Deformity using weight-bearing CT as well as statistical shape modeling to evaluate 3D parameters of clinical interest. When not in the lab Kas enjoys trail running and climbing in the mountains and deserts of Utah with her dog!
