CEEatGT graduate student Aliaksandr (Alex) Malokin has been named the 2014 recipient of the Gordon W. Schultz Graduate Fellowship.
The fellowship, supported by Parsons Brinckerhoff, annually recognizes a CEE graduate student specializing in travel demand modeling and analysis who also has career interests in transportation engineering/planning. While not a requirement of the award, the recipient may also be considered for an internship at Parsons Brinckerhoff.
The honor is named for Gordon W. Schultz, a transportation planner and modeler known for his outstanding contributions to the profession. Schultz applied the Traffic Research Corporation stratified curves for Metrorail forecasting in the late 1960s, led development of probit models for WashCOG in the early 1970s, and moved into multinomial logit modeling in the mid-1970s for the Twin Cities.
Professor Patricia L. Mokhtarian congratulated Malokin with the following note: "...I believe that your modeling work, in which you are beginning to quantify the impacts of travel multitasking on mode choice, would be of great interest to Gordon, and I think he would be pleased that you are receiving this award."
