Matthew S. Gerber

Matthew Gerber is an Assistant Professor of Systems and Information Engineering at the University of Virginia. He conducts research in Cyber-Human Systems (CHSs), which couple humans and computing to advance human capabilities and wellbeing. He is interested in how humans perceive their environment (e.g., its safety and risks), how these perceptions influence behavior, and how we might embed humans within CHSs to measure and modify these processes and outcomes. He teaches courses in data science, with a particular emphasis on statistical learning. He earned his Ph.D. in Computer Science from Michigan State University focusing on statistical models of meaning within natural language text.
