The University of Tennessee, Knoxville’s Center for Transportation Research has named its 2018–19 fellows:
- Candace Brakewood, Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering
- Linda Daugherty, Center for Applied Research and Evaluation
- Hyun Kim, Department of Geography
- Xueping Li, Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering
- Edward Taylor, Construction Industry Research and Policy Center
These faculty members were selected for their respective interests in transportation research. “We are proud of our fellows and the talents they bring to transportation research,” said CTR Director David Clarke, also a research associate professor in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering. “Their collective expertise extends our center’s ability to make a difference in the future of transportation.
“I hope our faculty fellows can play an active role in advising me on future directions for the center,” said Clarke. “We also hope they can interact with center staff and other affiliated faculty to further their research interests.”
The fellowship was established in 2014 to foster a community of researchers and educators at UT who are committed to improving all aspects of transportation.
With this fellowship, CTR recognizes both up-and-coming and established faculty who play leading roles in transportation education and research. A modest stipend is included.
The Center for Transportation Research was created in 1970 to foster and facilitate interdisciplinary research, public service, and outreach in the field of transportation at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville.
As a research center under the auspices of UT’s Tickle College of Engineering, CTR oversees programs associated with the educational, research, training, and industrial aspects of the transportation field.
The center has three goals, the first of which is to conduct a program of research in transportation that is recognized for its excellence, comprehensiveness, innovation, productivity, and national leadership. The second is to develop and sustain the technical expertise for high-quality transportation research by faculty and students in the departments and colleges of UT.
The third goal is to serve the transportation research, service, and training needs of state and local government, business, and industry in Tennessee, the Southeast, and the nation.
