Dr. Ehsani uses policy and behavioral research to prevent motor vehicle crashes and advance the health promoting aspects of transportation. Using experimental, observational and population-based methods, his research is focused on identifying policies that advance the safety and equity of the transportation system. Examples of his work include the effectiveness of licensing systems for teen drivers and distracted driving policies, naturalistic driving studies that examine individual-level driver behavior, and the impact of new mobility products and services (including bike-share, e-scooters and autonomous shuttles) on cities. He currently serves on the Academic Advisory Council of PAVE (Partners for Automated Vehicle Education).
Dr Ehsani currently has a teen driving research study in the field (Logbook Research Study). The purpose of this study is to make teenagers safer drivers by developing tools to use as they learn how to drive. Teenagers with a learner’s permit and their parents are eligible to enroll.
