Harper Awarded Eisenhower Graduate Fellowship

PhD candidate Corey Harper was recently awarded a 2016 Eisenhower Transportation Graduate Fellowship grant by the Department of Transportation. This competitive grant supports talented graduate students who are pursuing transportation-related degrees.

“Corey Harper has demonstrated a high-level of commitment and motivation for his research, has made strong contributions, and we are delighted that he has received this recognition for his work from the Department of Transportation,” said David Dzombak, Head of Civil and Environmental Engineering.

Harper, co-advised by Chris Hendrickson and Costa Samara, analyzes the environmental, infrastructure and safety implications of autonomous and connected vehicles on policies and transportation systems.

Currently, Harper is interning with the Electronic Systems Safety Research Division at the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration in Washington, D.C.

Congratulations, Corey!
