2020 TRB Annual Meeting

It was yet another amazing adventure to attend and present at the 2020 Transportation Research Board (TRB) Annual Meeting. This was my fifth time attending this meeting and the experience has never been better. I had an opportunity to present nine research topics in the areas of highway safety (secondary crashes, work zone safety, pedestrian safety, highway-railroad crossing, and express lane safety) and traffic operations (fundamental diagrams and freeway service patrol). Special thanks to my co-authors. I could not have done it without your support. Cheers to more collaborations in the future!  

As a student, I feel incredibly lucky to attend and participate in professional meetings. While the school equips me with the necessary skills to be a successful Transportation Engineer (hard skills), these meetings develop and sharpen my professional and leadership skills (soft skills). In the 2019 FLPRITE Annual Meeting, I have learned how Automated, Connected, Electric and Shared-use (ACES) vehicles will affect our Roadway System from policies to roadway design elements like pavement markings and signs. The meeting also provided me with a platform to present my dissertation work which focuses on the use of emerging technology to mitigate secondary crashes. Special thanks go to GCCITE and my Advisor Dr. Alluri for sponsoring my attendance at this meeting.  

2019 Helene M. Overly Memorial Scholarship Recipient

This was a remarkable moment of my life, one that I will remember forever. This journey started when I was selected as the winner of the SF WTS chapter scholarship recipient and my application was forwarded to the WTS International Committee for consideration in the national scholarship award. I am grateful for being a part of the WTS community. Not only has WTS provided a platform for my professional, leadership, and mentoring skills excellence, it has also given me an opportunity to expand my professional network and interpersonal skills.
