PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE BIOGRAPHY

Dr. Campbell has over 13 years of education, research and teaching experience in the fields of human behaviour, neurophysiology and the neural control of movement, in which he has contributed various high impact peer-reviewed scientific publications. Dr. Campbell’s research program is generally aimed at understanding the capacities and limitations of the human nervous system in perceiving and responding to cues presented in the environment. Dr. Campbell is an active peer-reviewer for scholarly societies, including the American Physiological Society and the Human Factors and Ergonomics Society.

Dr. Campbell participated in over 100 technical investigations and has considerable professional experience in examinations of driver behaviour, perception response and the roles of attention, expectation, visibility conditions and roadway design issues during collision events involving vehicles, pedestrians and bicycles. As well, Dr. Campbell’s experience extends towards understanding likely cause and contributing factors in human and environmental interactions at issue during personal injury events including slip, trip and fall.

Dr. Campbell has been invited by various institutes, associations and firms to deliver accredited educational lectures on topics such as human factors in driver behaviour, roadway safety design, as well as slip, trip and fall.
