Manmohan Joshi joins research group

I am pleased to announce that Manmohan Joshi is joining my research group as a PhD student. Manmohan comes from Nepal and will be working on two crash prediction projects funded by the National Cooperative Highway Research Program.

Olin Green joins research group

I am pleased to announce that Olin Green has joined my research group as of May 1. Olin has graduated from UConn with a BSE in Civil Engineering and will study for a PhD in the Civil Engineering program. He is working on a project funded by CT DOT and FHWA that will evaluate the safety effects of converting the pedestrian phasing at DOT traffic signals from “side-street-green” to “concurrent”.

Oluwaseun Olufowobi joins research group

I am excited to announce that Oluwaseun Olufowobi has joined my research group as a doctoral student. Olu comes to us having earned a MS in Civil Engineering from the University of Dayton. She will be working on my Federal Highway Administration EAR grant developing Realistic Artificial Data for evaluating crash prediction models. Welcome Olu!

New Graduate Students

I am happy to announce two new students joining my research group.

Muthumari Anbumani joined the group in January as a PhD student. She is working on the FHWA EAR project developing Realistic Artificial Data for evaluating crash prediction models.

Quinn Packer joined the group in August as a MS student. He is working for the Connecticut Transportation Safety Research Center constructing a safety analysis dataset.

They join my group which also consists of the following students:

Sadia Sharmin, a PhD candidate currently working on a CCTRP project incorporating demographic and behavioral variables into crash prediction models.

Md. Julfiker Hossain, a PhD candidate currently working on project NCHRP 17-85, estimating models to improve prediction of crash severity.

Pankaj Joshi, a MS student working on a CAMMSE project estimating models that consider pedestrian/vehicle conflicts to predict pedestrian crossing volumes.

Two graduate students pass PhD General Exam

I am proud to announce that two of my PhD Students, Md. Julfiker Hossain and Sadia Sharmin have passed the PhD General Exam. They are now both candidates for the PhD in Civil Engineering / Transportation and Urban Engineering. Congratulations Julfiker and Sadia!
