About Nicole

DrOneyear was a graduate research assistant at the Institute for Transportation for six years and now serves as an associate scientist. Her areas of expertise include rural curve safety, rural intersection safety, work zone safety and operations, using naturalistic driving data to assess safety and operations, microsimulation, and automated enforcement. She also works with the National Center for Rural Road Safety, helping it to develop, update, and provide training related to safety on rural roads.
