From the Director
Welcome to the UVM Transportation Research Center's e-Newsletter, a new format for communicating with our stakeholders and colleagues in the transportation research community. Throughout the year we will be providing updates on key research stemming from TRC's diverse funding sources, such as the UTC program, whose support of eleven projects ($1.1 million) related to the UVM Spires of Excellence was reported in our Spring newsletter.
This semester we welcomed nine new TRC Scholars. These Graduate Research Assistants are working across 4 colleges on cutting-edge research initiated by our associated faculty. Our new Graduate Certificate in Sustainable Transportation Systems and Planning welcomed three new participants in the fall and we are conducting outreach to make this program increasingly attractive to practitioners as well as full time students.
A great honor was bestowed on two members of the TRC community this summer when PhD student Nathan Belz and Assistant Professor Brian H. Y. Lee, both in the School of Engineering, won the Fred Burggraf Award from the Transportation Research Board (TRB) of the National Academies. This national award recognizes excellence in transportation research by researchers 35 years of age or younger. Nathan and Brian's work and dedication is a testament to the vitality of the TRC.
