The Center for Transportation Research has established itself as a go-to source for information, research, and expertise in all areas of transportation. Recently, CTR established its Fellows program to recognize some of the people who have helped advance that work. The program was started in 2014 to recognize and improve collaboration among faculty across the university who are focused on transportation-related research.
"Our goal is for faculty fellows to play an active role in our center, helping provide new ideas and initiatives," said David Clarke, director of the program and a research associate professor of civil and environmental engineering. "At the same time, we realize that working together across departments is often the key to success, so we foster that as well."
On February 15, seven current and former CTR Fellows competed in a Three Minute Research presentation.
The competitors were:
Eugene Fitzhugh, Center for Physical Activity & Health;
Shih-Lung Shaw, Geography;
Jonathan Overly, Institute for a Secure & Sustainable Environment;
Georg Schaur, Economics;
Mingzhou Jin, Industrial & Systems Engineering;
Chris Cherry, Civil & Environmental Engineering;
Richard Bennett, Civil & Environmental Engineering.
