Dr James Thompson has been a Research Fellow at the Centre for Automotive Safety Research (CASR) since 2015. He is part of the in-depth crash investigation team at CASR and has recently worked on projects examining rear-end crashes, road safety in regional and remote areas, the safety of trains at passive level crossings and road trauma involving motorcyclists. He received his PhD from the University of Adelaide in 2014 for a thesis examining the road safety and mobility of older drivers who live in rural areas compared to those who live in urban areas.

My research largely falls within the human behaviour side of road safety and I have recently worked on projects examining rear-end crashes, road safety in regional and remote areas, the safety of trains at passive level crossings and road trauma involving motorcyclists.
