With communication systems improving rapidly, most drivers use their mobile phones in the transport space for numerous purposes. But when my friend was almost killed in a head-on collision because he was using his mobile phone, I decided I wanted to know more about traffic safety issues and driver behaviour relating to mobile phone use.

I am doing my PhD in mobile phone distraction and traffic safety through rCITI group at UNSW Australia’s School of Civil and Environmental Engineering. This school is one of the most prestigious civil engineering schools in the world with faculty members and researchers who are world renowned.

rCITI is a nurturing environment, with fantastic resources and excellent opportunities which extend to possibilities of placement after graduation.
