Dr. Wiebe’s injury prevention research focuses on conducting studies of how places, policies, and locations where people spend time have implications for injury risks and health. His interests include environmental risk factors for injury; methodologic challenges of activity pattern measurement and exposure measurement; and, the impact of daily routines on health-related behavior. He has applied this expertise across a range of injury prevention areas, most notably firearm and concussion injury prevention.
