Principal Psychologist, Transport Research Laboratory
I am a principal psychologist interested in the study of human behavior and transport at the UK’s Transport Research Laboratory. My work has investigated the psychological processes through which novice drivers learn to anticipate hazards. I have led and contributed to numerous studies evaluating driver training and education, driver testing and licensing, and studies to understand the needs of novice drivers. I am currently involved in a large scale evaluation of interventions to improve the safety of novice drivers in Great Britain. I am a member of the US Transportation Research Board’s Young Driver Subcommittee and sit on the Advisory Council of the Road Safety Education Group, Australia and New Zealand.
