As of 2018, Kerber serves as Principal Investigator for NASA Discovery Program mission candidate Moon Diver, which proposes to send the JPL-developed Axel extreme terrain rover into one of several deep volcanic collapse pits on the moon, rappelling down the wall to expose the history of the lunar mare in order to illuminate the workings of the flood basalt eruptions that created them.
Kerber also serves as Deputy Project Scientist on the 2001 Mars Odyssey orbiter, the longest-surviving continually active spacecraft in orbit around a planet other than Earth.
