Nina Joyce, PhD is an Assistant Professor of Epidemiology at the Brown School of Public Health, a Research Associate in the Population Studies Training Center (PSTC) at Brown University, and an Associate Fellow at the Center for Injury Prevention (CIRP) at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia. Her transportation-related research focuses on (1) the effects of driver’s licensing policies, and particularly license suspensions, on health and social well-being, and (2) the effects of medication use on the risk of motor vehicle crashes in older adults.
Dr. Joyce received her PhD from Brown in 2015 before completing a National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) post-doctoral fellowship at Harvard Medical School in the Department of Health Care Policy. In addition to her work with CIRP, Dr. Joyce’s research focuses on methods for studying the effectiveness of vaccines in long-term care settings.
