Eight engineering students from the University of Arkansas (UA) recently visited Washington, D.C., to take part in an annual examination of innovative transportation research.
The Transportation Research Board 96th Annual Meeting drew more than 13,000 professionals from around the world, including seven UA graduate students --
Ali Al-Salman, Bryan Casillas, Joseph Daniels, Michael Deschenes, Tim Moody, Airam Morales and Sadie Smith
-- and undergraduate Rebekah Porter.
Smith presented her work during a number of sessions, and Daniels joined a poster session to present his research. Casillas, Daniels and Deschenes were awarded the Federal Highway Administration 2016-2017 Dwight David Eisenhower Transportation Fellowship, and Moody received the University Transportation Centers' Outstanding Student of the Year award.
The students also toured the Capitol and met with
U.S. Rep. Bruce Westerman and U.S. Sen. John Boozman, both of Arkansas.
