About Justin R Mason

Dr. Justin Mason is a Research Assistant Professor in the Department of Occupational Therapy in the College of Public Health and Health Professions. He received his B.S (Psychology), M.S. (Exercise Physiology), and Ph.D. (Sport and Exercise Psychology) from Florida State University. His research interests are in the role that lifestyle factors have in influencing cardiovascular health, community mobility, and cognitive function. His dissertation investigated the relationships between arterial stiffness and thickness, cognitive function, and driving performance in older adults. Dr. Mason and the Institute for Mobility, Activity, and Participation (I-MAP) team are working in collaboration with the University of Alabama at Birmingham and the City of Gainesville to investigate younger, middle-aged, older drivers’ perception of automated vehicles. The acceptance and use of innovative technology (e.g., vehicle automation) may enable older adults or those with disabilities to become more active in the community and enhance their quality of life.
