Personal profile

Biography

Kristie is a Senior Research Fellow and an ARC Discovery Early Career Researcher Award (DECRA) Fellow with the Monash University Accident Research Centre (MUARC) in Melbourne, Australia. She has a Bachelor of Applied Science (Psychology) (Honours) from Deakin University and a PhD in Human Factors from Monash University.

Kristie has over 15 years experience in applied human factors research, primarily in the road transport domain. She has been involved in numerous projects at the centre including: the Australian Naturalistic Driving Study, the impact of wearable technology on driver performance, driver exposure to distracting activities, the acceptability of in-vehicle technologies, intelligent speed adaptation for repeat speeders and the TAC SafeCar project. Kristie also has extensive research experience in Human Machine Interface (HMI) design, particularly design to reduce distracted driving and cross-regional HMI design. Her main research interests include driver adaptation to in-vehicle technology, distracted driving, Human Machine Interface (HMI) design, and vehicle automation. 

Kristie's DECRA project examines the potential for driver self-regulation to mitigate the effects of driver distraction. Driver distraction is a growing threat to road safety worldwide, contributing to approximately one quarter of all crashes. This project combines naturalistic driving and simulation methods to explore the role that positive driver self-regulation can play in mitigating the impact of distracted driving on performance and safety. The project outcomes will be used to develop a set of countermeasures to facilitate more effective driver self-regulation and reduce distraction-related road trauma.
