CTECH graduate research assistant Juan Carlos Martínez Mori has been awarded a Dwight David Eisenhower Transportation Fellowship (DDETFP). Carlos is a first year PhD student in Systems, working with CTECH co-PI Prof. Samitha Samaranayake. His research interests are in the development of algorithmic solutions for networked transportation systems. In particular, he is interested in the integration of on-demand mobility with public transportation, as a first/last mile solution.
Carlos received the fellowship at the Transportation Research Board (TRB) 97th Annual Meeting, in Washington, D.C. The DDETFP is a Federal Highway Administration program that awards fellowships to students pursuing degrees in transportation-related disciplines. The program advances the transportation workforce by helping to attract the nation’s brightest minds to the field of transportation, encouraging future transportation professionals to seek advanced degrees, and helping to retain top talent in the U.S. transportation industry.
