Her PhD candidature at the School of Public Health and Community Medicine - UNSW, is funded by the Research Training Program from the Australian Government. Her research is focused on young driver’s safety and injury by investigating psychological risk factors associated with risk taking behaviours as predictors of road injury. She is interested in analysing how risky behaviours change over time, using large longitudinal data sets linked to multiple health data (such as crash, hospital and death data). Her study aims to save lives by informing policy makers and road injury prevention programs targeting young drivers.
