Brief Bio:
Dr. Jenkins specializes in transportation engineering. Her ambition is to contribute to the safety and efficiency of transportation facilities and the education of future civil engineers. She has industry experience in collision reconstruction and transportation planning engineering. One of her continued areas of research is the use of driving simulation for transportation and traffic engineering studies. Dr. Jenkins has conducted experiments to test the impact of cellular telephone conversation on driving performance, evaluate drivers' comprehension of various protected permitted left turn signal displays, and study the impact of longer impeding vehicles on passing behavior. Her ongoing driving simulation work is focused on developing a methodology to identify when drivers have received enough practice to participate in experiments.
