Research Interests:

Dr. Porter studies large-scale community problems and psychology's role in solving those problems. He has studied techniques for increasing fire safety, pro-environment action, and most recently traffic safety. His current research includes partnerships with government and community agencies that are interested in changing unsafe roadway behaviors. Such work involves field research, behavioral interventions implemented and evaluated, and educational outreach. Topics of interest include: reducing red light running; reducing following too close (tailgating); increasing pedestrian safe walking and driver yielding; increasing safety-belt use by adults and correct child restraint use by children; and aggressive driving.
