Allison E. Curry, PhD, MPH

Principal Investigator

Alli leads the New Jersey Safety and Health Outcomes (NJ-SHO) Research Program to improve traffic safety and transportation equity in the state.  She and her team have published dozens of peer-reviewed studies using the NJ-SHO Data Warehouse, a unique research tool that integrates various statewide administrative databases. Born and raised in Bayonne, New Jersey, Alli looks forward to partnering with others in the state to promote a safe and healthy NJ.

Partnering to Catalyze Traffic Safety

In this Research In Action blog post, Alli shares how her team at the Center for Injury Research and Prevention partnered with the NJ Division of Highway Traffic Safety (HTS) to establish the NJ-SHO Center for Integrated Data. 

Young Autistic Drivers Crash Less Than Non-Autistic Peers

Compared with their non-autistic peers, young autistic drivers have lower rates of moving violations and license suspensions, as well as similar or lower crash rates.  However, these young drivers are three times more likely to crash when making a left or U-turn, suggesting the need for tailored training. 

GDL Decal Research to Advocacy Webinar

Research by Alli and others provides evidence that New Jersey’s Graduated Driver Licensing (GDL) decal provision is associated with lower crash rates for young drivers. This webinar presents research findings, practice advice on implementation, and answers to legislators’ common questions with a research-to-action emphasis.

Neurodevelopmental Differences and Driving Research

Alli and the NJ-SHO Center for Integrated Data team are conducting research with others at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia on neurodevelopmental differences and driving to examine rates of licensure and risk of crashing for adolescents and young adults to help establish the epidemiologic foundation for future translational research.
