About Sherrilene Classen

Sherrilene Classen, PhD, MPH, OTR/L, FAOTA, FGSA is Professor and Chair, Department of Occupational Therapy, College of Public Health and Health Professions, University of Florida. Dr. Classen is an internationally funded prevention-oriented rehabilitation scientist who studies fitness-to-drive issues in at-risk drivers using clinical assessments, driving simulators, on-road assessments, in-vehicle technologies, and autonomous, connected, electric and shared vehicles. Her scholarly work utilizes both a public health and a rehabilitation science approach to bring depth and breadth in understanding driving and mobility from multiple perspectives. Since 2002, she has received competitive external funding (totaling ~$10 million) from U.S. agencies (e.g., National Institutes of Health; National Institute for Disability, Independent Living, and Rehabilitation Research; Centers for Disease Control and Prevention; Department of Defense; Department of Transportation; industry and other organizations) as well as agencies in Canada and abroad. She has (co)authored over 170 peer-reviewed publications, book chapters, and special journal issues; is the editor of a handbook on driving simulation (AOTA Press, 2017); and has presented more than 300 papers at scientific conferences. Dr. Classen is the immediate past Editor-in-Chief of the Occupational Therapy Journal of Research, is a Fellow of the American Occupational Therapy Association and the Gerontological Society of America, and an inductee to the American Occupational Therapy Foundation’s Academy of Research.
