Tanya is an experienced researcher who specialises in translating complex evidence into practice. With sixteen years of experience in the road safety sector, especially in relation to young drivers and motorcyclists, Tanya seeks to bridge the gap between academia and practitioners to improve the quality of road safety interventions, particularly in the educational arena.
Tanya is Research Director at Agilysis and Principal Research Associate at Road Safety Analysis, leading research for both organisations, collaborating with the internal teams and often a variety of external experts to deliver projects.
Most recent work includes exploring the issues related to young motorcyclists, rural young drivers, adult pedestrians, older drivers, the road safety performance of the Coalition Government and assessing the British Road Safety Statement. She is also leading on strategy reviews for a number of road safety partnerships in the UK, helping local deliverers to adopt best practice methods.
In addition to research, Tanya has been leading evaluation projects since 2003, incorporating behaviour change theories into evaluation methodologies. Recent local and national evaluation projects include exploring the efficacy of young driver, advanced driver training and motorcycle interventions.
