Douglas Wiebe, PhD is an Associate Professor of Epidemiology at the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania and a Senior Fellow at the Center for Injury Research and Prevention at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia. Dr. Wiebe's research on children and adolescents investigates the places where people live, their everyday activities, and the impact of locations and daily routines on injury and other health outcomes. A particular interest is the methodologic challenges of measuring activity patterns and momentary exposures.
Dr. Wiebe's work is advancing methods in these areas through studies of topics that range from concussion management to risk factors for violent assault. His research has been funded by the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism, the National Institute of Justice, and the Penn Medicine Translational Neuroscience Center.
