Research interests

InjuryRoad safetyCategorical data analysisMeta-analysisBicycle helmets


My research interests are focused on statistical methods applied to epidemiological, psychological and population health data. My main application area has been in road safety research with a focus on the assessment of bicycle helmet legislation and other safety interventions. My statistical interests involve improving methods for assessing population-based interventions, binary parameter estimation and the development of operationally defined effect sizes in epidemiology.
