My research focus has been on the use of law and legal interventions to further public health and injury prevention goals. I have concentrated on the ways in which science, law, regulation, and litigation can work together to reduce the incidence and severity of injuries, particularly those caused by firearms, motor vehicles, and other consumer products.
More specifically, I have worked to evaluate the effects of various laws to prevent firearm and other injuries. I have also examined constitutional and other legal issues associated with injury prevention and public health preparednessl.
