BPsychSci, BSC (Hons) (Psych)

Chae’s PhD research focuses on applying an analytical criminology approach (guided by Situational Action Theory) to the field of road safety, in order to effectively integrate person- and environmental-oriented explanations of offender driving. Doing so not only enables a greater understanding as to who is more likely to offend while driving, but also why and under what circumstances a driver would choose to do so.

Prior to commencing his PhD, Chae was employed for a number of years as a Research Officer at CARRS-Q. He has extensive experience in both qualitative and quantitative research methods, including:

  • Facilitation of focus groups and interviews;
  • Development, implementation, and interpretation of surveys;
  • Conducting experimental research designs involving laboratory-based studies and driving simulators;
  • Systematic reviews and meta-analyses;
  • GIS; and
  • Drawing insights from large datasets.
