Dr. Segui-Gomez's research focuses on the methodology and policy issues related to unintentional injuries, particularly motor vehicle-related injuries. Her interests relate to the development and application of outcome measures (e.g., long-term consequences), program evaluation (including economic evaluation) and decision analysis. She has co-authored several original articles and a book chapter on cost-effectiveness in injury prevention.
She is the principal investigator of a recently funded CDC R0-1 to investigate the long-term consequences of motor vehicle crashes among elderly drivers and passengers.
