Nancy Pullen-Seufert has been with the University of North Carolina (UNC) Highway Safety Research Center (HSRC) since 2003. Her work has focused on pedestrian and bicycle safety and mobility, particularly for the school age population to which she brings a background in public health and injury prevention.

Nancy has a master’s degree in public health and serves as the director for the National Center for Safe Routes to School, associate director for the Pedestrian and Bicycle Information Center and senior research associate for HSRC.

Nancy is principal investigator in their Vision Zero for Youth Initiative, bringing together the Center’s experience of more than ten years serving as the US Dept of Transportation’s clearinghouse for the Federal SRTS program and more than 30 years of pedestrian and bicycle safety research with the new challenges communities, states and countries are facing in reaching zero traffic deaths and serious injuries.
