Two ITS students Eric Gonzales (left), Transportation Engineering, and Dan Work (right), Systems Engineering, have been selected as 2010 Eno Fellows.
Gonzales and Work will be among 20 top graduate students in transportation fields in the U.S. who will travel to Washington, D.C. for a close-up view of how transportation policies are developed. Their visit in May will include meetings with federal officials and leaders of business and non-profit organizations through the Eno Transportation Foundation.
Gonzales, whose faculty advisor is CEE Professor Carlos Daganzo, was selected for his work on allocating city space to multiple transport modes. Work, whose faculty advisor is CEE Assistant Professor Alexandre Bayen, was honored for his work on applications of mobile sensing for transportation systems.
In addition, Work also received the ENO Transportation Foundation’s Rodney E. Slater Award for his work on Mobile Millennium and his achievements on traffic monitoring technology. This annual award honors a student who demonstrates outstanding leadership qualities amidst life’s challenges and adversity, a thirst for knowledge, a drive to achieve. It is named for former Secretary of Transportation Rodney Slater, who served in the Clinton Administration.
