My Ph.D. focused on developing a better understanding of how thoracic (i.e., chest) injuries occur in passenger vehicle rollover crashes. Rollover crashes constitute only 2% to 3% of all vehicle crashes in Australia and the USA; however, they contribute to a disproportionate 30% to 35% of all vehicle crash fatalities. This translates into approximately 8,000 to 10,000 fatalities per year in the USA. By understanding what causes these fatalities we can develop better ways of preventing serious and fatal injuries in rollover crashes. More detailed information about this research area and my other research areas can be found under the Research Area page.

Outside of Work
While I'm not engineering, you will often find me out and about on my motorcycle, cycling, travelling off the beaten path, or bush walking/hiking.
