Brief Bio

My research focuses on the epidemiology and prevention of motor vehicle crashes among individuals across the lifespan, especially children and adolescents. I have led the development of the New Jersey Safety and Health Outcomes (NJ-SHO) Data Warehouse, a tool being used to advance safety and health research and associated epidemiologic methods through novel linkages of state-level administrative data sources—including driver licensing, motor vehicle crashes, traffic citations, medical records, healthcare utilization, and vital statistics data. I am also the PI of a research program funded by The Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD) that aims to promote driving safety among teens with attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder and autism spectrum disorder.
