Marco Dozza

Docent at Chalmers, Mechanics and Maritime Sciences, Vehicle Safety

Marco Dozza is an Associate Professor in Active Safety and Road-user Behavior in the Department of Mechanics and Maritime Sciences at Chalmers University of Technology. Within this department, he coordinates the research area on Crash Analysis and Prevention (CAP) in the Vehicle Safety Division. Within the CAP area, Marco leads the Road User Interaction (RUI) group. Research in this group focuses on modelling road-user behaviour, development and evaluation of active safety, human interaction with automation, and cycling safety. The work of the RUI group is rooted in cognitive science and neuroscience, combines engineering and human factors, and relays on naturalistic and experimental data.Marco earned his Ph.D. in Bioengineering from University of Bologna, Italy in collaboration with Oregon Health and Science University, Portland OR, USA (www.dozza.org). After graduation, he worked as System Developer for over 2 years at Volvo Technology, a research and innovation company inside the Volvo group. Since 2009, he has been an Examiner for the course Active Safety in the Master’s Programme for Automotive Engineering. He is also affiliated with the SAFER Vehicle and Traffic Safety Center, where he leads several projects on traffic safety.
