Dr. Jake Streepey graduated from Floyd Central High School in Floyd Knobs, IN in 1990. After receiving his BA in Anthropology from Indiana University in 1993, he attended the University of Michigan (UM) in Ann Arbor.  He studied how balance changed in with age in children.  He graduated from UM in 2003 with a Ph.D. in Kinesiology and moved to Chicago where he was a post-doctoral researcher at the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago (RIC). There he was part of a research group examining how virtual reality could be used to help people with balance disorders.  He has been at IUPUI since 2006.
