Congratulations to Civil and Environmental Engineering doctoral candidate Zhe Fu, who was recently awarded the California Transportation Foundation (CTF) Supported Intelligent Transportation Society of California (ITSCA) Scholarship!
"As a dedicated ITS researcher, my research is fueled by the ambition to translate emergent theories and technologies into practical, cost-effective solutions that address real-world challenges. I am particularly interested in harnessing the potential of current advancements, such as automated vehicles (AVs), to enhance mobility and energy efficiency at the systemic level of traffic management,” says Fu. “I am deeply honored to be the recipient of the 2023 ITSCA and CTF Scholarship. This recognition not only amplifies my commitment to the field but also propels me closer to my vision of revolutionizing transportation systems."
The CTF supported ITSCA Scholarship advances academic studies and careers in the field of ITS. Eligible students must be Masters/Ph.D. students in an accredited university in California, studying any ITS-related field including, for example, engineering, computer science, transportation planning, or public policy.
Fu is a doctoral candidate studying Transportation Engineering with a strong academic background and abundant research experiences in traffic control, machine learning, and data science field. She is advised by Professor of Civil of Environmental Engineering (CEE) and Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (EECS) Alexandre Bayen. Fu is affiliated with Berkeley’s Artificial Intelligence Research (BAIR) Lab, the Institute of Transportation Studies (ITS), Center for Information Technology and Research in the Interest of Society (CITRIS), Berkeley Deep Drive (BDD), and California Partners for Advanced Transportation Technology (California PATH).
Fu earned a MS (EECS) and MS (Transportation Engineering) at UC Berkeley and a BS (Transportation Engineering) at Tongji University.
