Dr. Gielen is Professor and Director of the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg Center for Injury Research and Policy at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. She conducts applied intervention research focused on community and clinic-based prevention programs. Areas of current work include the prevention of intimate partner and sexual violence, childhood injuries, infant sleep-related deaths, fires, burns, opioid overdose, and motor vehicle-related injuries. Dr. Gielen started her public health career at the Maryland Department of Health creating the state's first child passenger safety program, which is still in existence after more than thirty years. She is widely known for her work in applying behavioral science theory to injury problems, including serving as lead editor on the first textbook on the subject, and she has published more than 200 peer-reviewed publications.
