Personal profile


Carlyn is a Senior Research Fellow at Monash University Accident Research Centre.  With qualifications in psychology and public health, she has a particular interest in safety governance and culture across a diverse range of injury prevention topics.  She has experience in research, policy and evaluation in road safety and occupational safety, both nationally and internationally.  Carlyn has managed a number of large scale safety projects, with a focus on the prevention and management of injury among high risk groups (for example, emergency services and work-related drivers). This involves the application of psychological and health theory to understand and influence behaviour within complex systems.  A strong focus of this research is to develop policy recommendations that are evidence-based, practical and achievable.  Carlyn also co-ordinates MUARC’s activities as a World Health Organization Collaborating Centre for Violence and Injury Prevention, which focuses on research, advocacy and capacity building in the Western Pacific Region.
