Dr, Shanjiang Zhu, Assistant Professor of George Mason University, won Wins International Award for Traffic Congestion Ideas.
George Mason University civil engineering professor Shanjiang Zhu has been honored for his work in reducing city traffic congestion. Zhu, a Center for Transportation Public-Private Partnership Policy research fellow at School of Public Policy, was awarded the 2014 Young Researcher of the Year Award by the International Transport Forum (ITF).
Zhu was selected by an international jury of experts for his development of a multidimensional traffic congestion simulation model. His research has created an invaluable and technically sound tool to evaluate policy options for congestion reduction in cities. The award highlights the importance of transportation research for policy formulation. Researchers considered for the award are under 35 and are affiliated with a research institution in one of the 54 member countries of the ITF.
The ITF is an intergovernmental organization for the transportation industry with 54 member countries, serving as a think-tank for transportation policy around the world. Its mission is to help shape the transportation policy agenda on a global level and ensure that it contributes to economic growth, environmental protection, social inclusion and the preservation of human life and well-being.
