Personal profile

Research interests

My research has focussed on the safety implications of: operator workload attentional distraction task autonomy, and task conflict. Much of this has been undertaken in the context of the car and truck users. Recently, I have been working on the issues associated with ‘social’ distractions in the vehicle, and opportunities to encourage safe and efficient driving.
