Dipan Bose is a Road Safety Specialist with the Global Road Safety Facility (GRSF) at the World Bank's Transport Anchor. He is a road safety engineer by training with research experience in developing interventions to mitigate road crash-related trauma. He is directly involved in multiple transport sector projects (mainly in South Asia) related to institutional strengthening, infrastructure safety and other multi-sectorial intervention programs in road safety. In addition he also coordinates global road safety grant programs and research activities for the Facility. Prior to joining the World Bank in 2012, he was a Research Scientist at the University of Virginia Center for Applied Biomechanics focusing on the vehicle restraint systems and injury epidemiology program. The results of his research has been used in developing global standards for pedestrian injury risk criteria, and tools necessary for crash injury assessment. He has authored several peer-reviewed journal articles, book chapters and spoken at international conferences on topics ranging from vehicle safety designing to public health burden issues on road injury. He received his PhD from the University of Virginia Department of Mechanical Engineering in 2008 with a focus on vehicle safety designs for pedestrians and vulnerable occupants.
