Kathleen Bieryla earned her master’s and doctoral degrees in mechanical engineering from Virginia Tech, and her undergraduate degree in bioengineering from the University of Pittsburgh. After graduate school, Kathleen began teaching in the biomedical engineering department at Bucknell University (Lewisburg, Penn.) where she taught a variety of courses including biomechanics, instrumentation, design, and programming. Her research interests include full body biomechanics with the majority of her past research focused on falls and balance in older adults. More recently, her research has concentrated on collegiate field hockey players, examining pre- and postseason fitness measures, biomechanics, and physiology metrics. Kathleen is an active member of the American Society of Biomechanics and the American Society for Engineering Education. As an East Coast native, she is looking forward to living on the West Coast.
