Research Interests

Dr. Jonathan Rupp’s research has supported the development of new federal regulations, test procedures, and test devices to improve safety for occupants in motor vehicle crashes and in military vehicles exposed to under-body blast. He has collected and analyzed data on crashes and crash injury to identify risk and protective factors, developing tools for assessing the ability of vehicles to mitigate the potential for injury crashes, and statistical modeling to estimate the benefits of injury prevention technologies.  His current work includes studies aimed at developing new methods for investigating pedestrian injury crashes, assessing how to most effectively counsel patients on firearm injury prevention in the ED, characterizing factors influencing micro mobility device injuries, and epidemiological studies of adverse childhood experiences. He also leads the NHTSA-funded Crash Injury Research and Engineering Network (CIREN) center at Emory University/Grady Memorial Hospital.
