An epidemiologist specializing in injury prevention, Professor Baker was the first director of the Johns Hopkins Center for Injury Research and Policy. Her research includes motor vehicle occupant and pedestrian deaths among children and adults; fatalities related to aviation, motorcycles, and heavy trucks; carbon monoxide poisoning; drowning; childhood asphyxiation; housefires; falls in the elderly; homicide; suicide; fatal occupational injuries; and injury severity scoring. She is well known for developing the widely used Injury Severity Score and for authoring the Injury Fact Book. She is a licensed private pilot.
