Assistant Research Scientist

I am interested in the etiology of injuries and fatalities due to motor vehicle crashes from a human factors and behavioral standpoint. I conduct research using a variety of methodologies in order to uncover and disseminate evidence that can contribute to the safe mobility of road users, that can inform policy, and that can lead to technological and educational innovations for improving the road safety record and for reducing injury. My research covers driver behavior and traffic safety with a focus on automated and connected vehicles, young and novice drivers risk behaviors; training and intervention; and, distraction detection and mitigation. My research projects in these areas use various approaches and methodologies including driving simulation, test tracks, naturalistic methods, and observational methods.
