Prior to working in injury prevention, I worked 8 years for the Johns Hopkins Mind/Brain Institute doing research to study cognitive outcomes of coronary artery disease and coronary artery bypass grafting surgery. I have worked in the field of injury prevention for the past 5 years.
My primary research interests are in the prevention of unintentional and intentional injuries, specifically those related to transportation (e.g., older driver safety, distracted driving, biking, walking) and recreation (e.g., safety in parks). My current work focuses on the development, implementation, evaluation, and dissemination of effective injury prevention interventions, with a special emphasis on policy. I am particularly interested in identifying the most effective ways to translate and disseminate research findings to: relevant communities and organizations to implement evidence-based injury prevention programs; other stakeholders, such as policymakers for the development and implementation of evidence-based injury prevention policies.
