Ms. Griffith has expertise in the areas of accident reconstruction and automotive injury biomechanics. Leveraging her educational and professional backgrounds in mechanical engineering and in automotive safety research, she addresses issues related to motor vehicle collisions and accident reconstruction. Her skills include analysis of vehicle and occupant dynamics, Computer Aided Design (CAD), imaging vehicle event data recorders, laser scanning for accident reconstruction, and a variety of accident reconstruction analysis methodologies.
Prior to joining Exponent, Ms. Griffith worked as a Research Project Engineer at the Center for Injury Research and Prevention (CIRP) at the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP). While at CIRP, she provided engineering support for research projects across a range of topics including automotive safety biomechanics, pediatric occupant safety, teenage driving, and neuromotor control and development. She managed human subject research studies to analyze the effects of non-standard seating positions and postures, advanced restraint systems, and Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) on the kinematics and kinetics of pediatric, adolescent, and adult drivers and occupants in sled-simulated low-speed scenarios. She has extensive experience using MATLAB to analyze human subject data collected using motion capture systems, electromyography (EMG), load cells, and inertial measurement units (IMUs). Her experience also includes both low- and high-speed sled testing with anthropomorphic test devices (ATDs), analysis of vehicle test data, and the design, modification, and maintenance of human subject test fixtures and data acquisition systems.
