Eryn Gerber is a 2019-2023 Self Graduate Fellow pursuing a Ph.D. in bioengineering. She completed her undergraduate degree in biomedical engineering at the University of Delaware in 2018. Her volunteer experience and personal encounters with the cost of medical care have led her to pursue the development of accessible and cost-efficient physical rehabilitation techniques to improve quality of life for all individuals. Her current research in the KU Biodynamics Research Lab revolves around the development and use of a low-cost vibratory device to improve balance and prevent falls in individuals with somatosensory deficits. After completion of her degree, she aims to work as a Research & Development Engineer to create inclusive medical interventions.
