Professor Wins Two Best Paper Awards

Professor Haitham Al-Deek has won not one, but two Best Paper Awards from the Transportation Research Board. He received the Freeway Operations Committee Best Paper Award and the Regional Transportation Systems Management and Operations Best Paper Award. Both honors are extremely competitive to earn. To win these awards, the paper has to be rated the top of all papers submitted to the committee in that year. The papers also go through an independent and a very rigorous review and evaluation process.
