Research interest

My research interest is in the field of traffic safety, driving behaviour and human factors, focusing on intercultural comparison of driving behaviour, and driver education. Using driving simulator and questionnaire I have developed a new model for assessing level of confidence among drivers. I am also interested in finding ways to improve human behaviour in safety critically environments, specifically driving.
