​I'm a full-time assistant professor of radiology at Palmer College of Chiropractic - West Campus, and also have a private imaging practice, Skalski Chiropractic Radiology. I recently completed a one year Musculoskeletal radiology research fellowship at the University of Southern California (USC) Keck School of Medicine, which was mostly focused on MRI. In addition to these, I also volunteer a considerable amount of my time as a senior editor at Radiopaedia.org, and assist with the site’s multiple social media projects. I do this because I feel it is my duty as a health professional and as a person to give back as much as I possibly can to better the world we live in, and Radiopaedia allows me to do this effectively through the FOAMed model (Free Open Access Medical Education).

My research interests lie primarily in musculoskeletal radiology, for which I’ve presented numerous educational exhibits at international scientific meetings, and authored or contributed to several research articles. I collaborate on research projects primarily within my fellowship in the Department of Musculoskeletal Radiology at USC.

One important part of what I do in work, reasearch, and with Radiopaedia includes medical illustration and graphic design, a hobby I am passionate about but learned out of necessity. This self-taught skill I developed to help teach radiology to students, as a way of communicating how to interpret pathology on imaging. I now use this skill to help educate health professionals in many specialties at all levels of experience.


​Personally, I’m a passionate landscape photographer, home-brewer, reader, traveler, and most of all husband to my wonderful wife. I’m also an avid downhill skier, water skier, road bicyclist, hiker, and general outdoor enthusiast. My favorite genres for leisure reading include science fiction and non-fiction science and technology. I make ample use of my driving time listening to audio books when I'm not listening to NPR. My favorite style of beers to brew (and consume) include Belgian abbey style ales, but I occasionally brew imperial porters, stouts and IPAs.
