About Dr Oleksandra Molloy


Dr Oleksandra Molloy (Formally Krasnova) is a Post-Doctoral Research Associate at UNSW Aviation. The main aim of her current project is investigating a new training approach to address young drivers’ speed management behaviour. Dr Molloy completed her PhD in 2018 at UNSW Aviation. Her thesis focused on examining training interventions to improve young drivers’ speed management behaviour. From 2014 to 2018, Dr Molloy has been working as a Casual Tutor in Aviation Safety and Resource Management, as a Research Assistant at UNSW Aviation, and as a Human Factors Specialist in industry. Prior to 2014, Dr Molloy has worked as a Teaching Assistant at National Technical University, and as a Research Assistant at the School of Aviation Safety, Kirovograd Flight Academy of National Aviation University (Ukraine). Dr Molloy has also experience of teaching professional training courses (PPL/CPL/ATPL) to pilots and engineers.

 

Area of Interest


Dr Molloy has more than 10 years of experience in teaching, research, and consultancy in the areas of aviation, road safety, human factors, education/training, and rail. Her specific area of research is training of young novice operators (e.g., drivers – in road research and pilots – in aviation research) to improve their non-technical (e.g., risk management) skills. In her research, she incorporates different methods and latest technology, including: driving/flight simulators, an instrumented vehicle, eye-tracking glasses, Mobileye tracking system, digital human modelling software JACK, etc. 

Dr Molloy has contributed to various research projects funded by government and industry, including: Australian Research Council (ARC), Transport for New South Wales (TfNSW), Sydney Trains, Roads and Maritime Services (RMS), Australian Customs and Border Protection Services (ACBPS).

Dr Molloy is always keen to collaborate with scientists or industry-based researchers interested in the areas of aviation and road safety, driver training, human factors, and rail.
