Apr 07, 2014 | IEEE
Northwestern University Cordell Breed Junior Professor of Design Liz Gerber [D'98 engineering sciences major] has been named the 2014 recipient of the IEEE Computer Society Computer Science and Engineering Undergraduate Teaching Award for her contributions to learning.
Liz Gerber earned her MS and PhD in Product Design and Management Science and Engineering at Stanford. She specializes in design and human-computer interaction, particularly how social computing supports the innovation process. Her current research investigates crowd-funding as a mechanism for reducing disparities in entrepreneurship. Gerber was recognized "for her paradigm-shifting extracurricular design initiative that fosters interdisciplinary collaboration and learning."
Gerber's work funded by the US National Science Foundation and the National Collegiate Inventors and Innovators Alliance has appeared in peer-reviewed journals, including Transactions on Computer Human Interactions, Design Studies, and Organization Science.
