Jason Thompson's Profile Picture
Dr

Jason Thompson

 

Dr Jason Thompson holds a PhD in Medicine, Masters in Clinical Psychology, and a Bachelor of Science with Honours. His work focuses on the translation of research into practice across the areas of urban design, transportation safety, public health, post-injury rehabilitation, and health system design.

Since 2014, Dr Thompson has published over 40 articles at the intersection of urban design, computational modelling, transport safety, and health outcomes. His work has pioneered the use of agent-based models and computational methods in areas of traditional health system design, urban design, and transportation safety.Dr Thompson is an Australian Research Council Discovery Early Career Award (DECRA) Fellow. His DECRA project surrounds challenges associated with the introduction of autonomous vehicles on the operation and sustainability of Australia’s $5b personal injury insurance market. In particular, how this transition will change injury rates and types, the operation of compensation and rehabilitation systems, and how systems responses will shape the autonomous vehicle market, itself.
