Katherine (Katie) Harmon
Katie Harmon joined HSRC as a Postdoctoral Research Associate in September 2018. Her research focuses on the application of epidemiologic and injury surveillance methods for the purpose of preventing traffic-related injuries. She is especially interested in preventing injuries among vulnerable road users, such as pedestrians, bicyclists, the elderly, and children.
Currently, she is the project manager of the Motor Vehicle Crash Injury Data Linkage Project, in which she coordinates the activities of a multidisciplinary team to link statewide health outcome data to police-reported crash data. In addition, she is involved in several projects with the Collaborative Sciences Center for Road Safety and the Pedestrian and Bicycle Information Center.
Katie received her doctorate in epidemiology at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, with a concentration in injury prevention. She also has a M.P.H. from Saint Louis University, with a joint concentration in epidemiology and environmental and occupational health and a B.S. in environmental health science from The University of Georgia. In her free time, Katie enjoys running, hiking, and fishing along with her partner and dog.
