Dr. Wiebe studies interactions between people and the environment and the health risks that result, with a focus on injuries and violence — the leading cause of death during the first half of the lifespan. He approaches study design issues by working at a temporal and spatial scale that is relevant to the induction period for a given exposure and outcome. The Space-Time Epi Group that he directs supports trainees whose research topics have a temporal dimension, a spatial dimension, or both. Managing and preventing sport-related concussion and firearm injuries are prominent in his research and training activities.

Dr. Wiebe is on the Executive Committee of the U-M Concussion Center and is affiliated with the U-M Institute for Firearm Injury Prevention as a scientist/ scholar.
