Xiong Awarded Smith Graduate Fellowship

PhD candidate Ruoxin Xiong was recently awarded the Bradford and Diane Smith Graduate Fellowship. Xiong earned his undergraduate Transportation Equipment and Control Engineering from Central South University and a master's degree in Transportation Engineering from Shanghai Jiao Tong University.

Advised by Professor Pingbo Tang, his research focuses on developing intelligent human-automation collaboration for supporting reliable and adaptive civil infrastructure management systems, such as buildings, bridges, and air traffic systems.

"I am so grateful for the generous support of Mr. and Mrs. Smith and truly appreciate the help and support of the fellowship committee and my advisor," says Xiong. "This support encourages me to further progress towards my research work."

The Bradford and Diane Smith fellowship was created through the generosity of Bradford Smith, a 1969 graduate of the College of Engineering, and his wife Diane, a 1971 graduate of the Dietrich College of Humanities and Social Sciences, to help support the graduate studies of highly deserving students in the College of Engineering (CMU).
