The IHE Middle East Branch would like to invite you to their online technical CPD webinar on Wednesday 17th January 2024.
Jwan will be talking about general prediction models available for road safety data: collisions and near-misses. She will be going through traditional prediction models that have been used for decades and illustrate why they are no longer valid and what could go wrong in case applying them in practice. This is then followed by up-to-date research on this topic, further, she will explain the reason behind the approach. Then Jwan will discuss some statistical tools and touch upon some programmes that could be used to undertake such models/approaches.
Jwan will finalise her talk with a case study which is undertaken as part of her PhD research. Briefly she will summarise the results of up-to-date collision prediction models undertaken on the UK roundabouts.
Dr Jwan Kamla is a Principal Operational Road Safety Engineer at Jacobs. She is a Chartered Engineer with 19 years of experience in the area of highway, traffic and road safety engineering.
Jwan is a road safety specialist; she is working on various major projects for National Highways. Jwan is technical specialist lead in the area of data, modelling and collision analysis for various projects.
Due to her research background she is providing the business with the support around data analysis, interpretations, limitations and conclusions. Her work is evidence based on research. Jwan is also an active road safety auditor, undertaking audits across the National Highways and Local Authority roads in the UK.
In her PhD at the University of Nottingham she has worked on “Analysing truck position data to study roundabout accident risk in the UK’. She has a number of publications in the area of road safety. As part of her research Jwan has presented in a number of conferences including Transportation Research Board in Washington DC, Safer Road Conference in Cheltenham, UK, SoRSA 2023 Conference, University of Nottingham and CIHT EM annual conference.
Jwan is Vice Chair for the Chartered Institution of Highways and Transportation (CIHT) East Midlands Region and Web Officer for the Society of Road Safety Auditors (SoRSA).
