How Multiple Male Peer Passengers Affect Male Adolescent Risky Driving
February 2, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
We invite you to join us for lunch and an informative seminar on Thursday, February 2, featuring Anuj Pradhan and his research on adolescent male driving behavior.
Dr. Pradhan is interested in the etiology of injuries and fatalities due to motor vehicle crashes from a human factors and behavioral standpoint. He is interested in conducting relevant studies using a variety of methodologies in order to uncover and disseminate evidence that can contribute to the safe mobility of road users, that can inform policy, and that can lead to technological and educational innovations for improving the road safety record and for reducing injury. His research covers driver behavior and traffic safety with a focus on young and novice drivers, particularly for risky behaviors and other risk factors for injuries; training and intervention, including parental management and feedback methodology; and, distraction detection and mitigation. He has worked on a number of research projects in these areas using various approaches and methodologies including driving simulation, test tracks, naturalistic methods, and observational methods. He will present findings from his recent U-M Injury Center-funded study, “How Multiple Male Peer Passengers Affect Male Adolescent Risky Driving.”
Free lunch provided to those who register by Tuesday, January 31.
A live webcast will be offered. To join the webcast, register for the event and indicate “webcast” where indicated. You will receive log-in information prior to the event.
