Mahdi Pour-Rouholamin, a postdoctoral research associate in the Department of Civil Engineering at Auburn University, was recently awarded first place from the 2016 Highway Safety Information System, or HSIS, Research Paper Competition. The HSIS Research Paper Contest, jointly administered by the Federal Highway Administration and Institute of Transportation Engineers, or ITE, challenges young safety researchers to use HSIS data with the intent of introducing potential future highway safety professionals to quality safety data, the application of appropriate research methods to derive recommendations and the practice of using data to make decisions. As the first place recipient, Pour-Rouholamin was invited to be recognized during the ITE 2016 Annual Meeting Awards Luncheon on Aug. 15, in Anaheim, California, to receive a commemorative plaque. His paper will also be published in the ITE Journal and on the HSIS website. For more information, visit the website.
