Dr. Gerber uses her expertise in anatomy, physiology, and engineering to answer questions pertaining to human biomechanics. She specializes in analyses related to balance and postural stability with extensive experience investigating the influence of sensation, including vision, vestibular sense, and touch to better understand fall mechanisms in older adults.

Dr. Gerber has conducted numerous human subject experiments utilizing a myriad of biomechanical tools, including motion capture systems, force plates, instrumented treadmills, electromyography, and dynamic mechanical testing systems. At Exponent, she uses this experience to critically evaluate injury potential in motor vehicle, occupational, and recreational accidents.                                                   

Prior to joining Exponent, Dr. Gerber worked as a Graduate Research Assistant in the Biodynamics Research Lab at the University of Kansas. She was awarded the prestigious, merit-based Madison & Lila Self Graduate Fellowship, which funded her Ph.D. education and fall risk research. Dr. Gerber also has experience in running biomechanics and sportswear product development, having previously worked in Research & Development at Brooks Running.
