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 current research in the KU Biodynamics Research Lab revolves around the measurement and treatment of balance deficits in the aging population, with the primary goal of preventing life-threatening falls. She takes an interdisciplinary approach, working with both engineers and clinicians to develop patient-relevant metrics and intervention strategies. Gerber is also involved in several side projects, including a partnership with Assistive Technology for Kansans, where she is working to integrate inclusive design concepts and disability education into the university community. Upon completion of her degree, she plans to continue her work in Research & Development to investigate new clinical and research-based human performance measurement techniques.
