Member Profile #19: Traffic Bowl Team


Prepared by: Rebecca Franke (UK)


This week's profile is a special edition of Meet Your Fellow Traffic Bowl Team!  This year's team is a group of students ranging from undergrad to PhD, and we've had a great time meeting with them the last few months.


Names: Alex Wang, Xu Zhang, Audrey Knaub, Andrea Cull 

Place of Study: University of Kentucky


Degree(s)? Place of Birth? Interests?

This is Alex's first year at UK, having gotten his BSCE and MSCE at the University of Iowa. He is continuing his work toward his PhD studying planning, safety, data, and GIS. Originally from midwest China, he enjoys driving his BMW around on days after school.

Xu is a first year graduate student at UK studying transportation system performance and monitoring from central China. He got his undergraduate degree from Southwest Jiaotong University. One of his hobbies includes nunchucking!

Our youngest member on the team is in her third year of study at UK. Audrey Knaub, coming to us from Naperville, IL, has narrowed her focus down to transportation and construction. Her favorite color is blue and she was in New Orleans to witness the Final Four game firsthand! 

Andrea is also a graduate student at UK. Born in Louisville, KY she says that she was "raised right" and is getting both her BSCE and MSCE at UK. Her research includes transition zones and traffic calming. She is looking forward to graduating in December, and is an avid jaywalker.


Other interesting information? 

The team has their final practice last night and looks forward to seeing everyone at the conference! The competition is on Monday at 3:30 in the Grand Kentucky Ballrooms C & D.
