Prof. Fischer is a Faculty Scholar in the Zuckerman STEM Leadership Program which supports future generations of leaders in science, technology, engineering, and math in the United States and Israel and, over time, fosters greater collaboration between the world’s most advanced scientific research centers.

Her work focuses on the biomechanics of human motion and the implementation of wearable sensor systems. She hopes to find solutions to correct orthopedic pathologies and to develop tools for integrating biomedical data that will drive personalized methods for early detection and prevention of movement disorders. She has created biomedical applications such as high-tech sensors and smart wearable devices for artificial joints, sports injuries, osteoarthritis, and neuromuscular disorders. 

Prof. Fischer is a member of the Technion Faculty Ambassador Program, which prepares faculty to serve as speakers during events and meetings with supporters in the U.S. and around the world. As such, Ambassador Faculty are mentored to better understand the mission of the ATS and other Technion Societies. This “win-win” program is expected to benefit the Technion while also offering its Ambassadors wider exposure to their research and opportunities to polish their presentation skills.  

Born in the U.S., she immigrated to Israel with her family when she was 10 years old. Prof. Fischer started her studies at MIT and then transferred to the Technion, earning her bachelor’s degree in biomedical engineering and her master’s and doctorate in mechanical engineering. She was a postdoctoral fellow at Stanford University before joining the Technion in October 2020 as a Zuckerman Faculty Scholar.
