Professor Gerber’s research is centered in the experimental study of hadron collisions at the highest energies available. Her work involves the development of semiconductor detectors that precisely track the passage of charged particles and the elucidation of the characteristics of the production processes of top quarks and searches for new physics that decay preferentially to top quarks.

Prof. Gerber is a member of the CMS Collaboration at CERN. She was elected fellow of the American Physical Society in 2010 and Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science in 2021.
