January 12, 2010
The NEXTRANS Center is pleased to announce its selection of Brandon Strohl as its 2009 Student of the Year. Brandon is a Masters candidate in the Civil and Environmental Engineering and City and Regional Planning programs at The Ohio State University.
Brandon’s interests are in the area of transportation systems analysis and planning. His research involves the advanced evaluation of estimation procedures that produce transit bus route origin-destination (OD) flows from boarding and alighting data. This data is obtained from OSU’s Campus Transit Lab using Automatic Passenger Count (APC) technologies.
Brandon was awarded the highly competitive merit-based Graduate School University Fellowship for his first year of graduate study at OSU. He has worked for the Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) and EMH&T Inc, and is an active member in the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), Chi Epsilon, and the National Civil Engineering Honor Society.
Brandon was selected based on his strong academic standing, research contributions, leadership and management skills, broad professional experience, and his keen interest in advancing the field of transportation systems analysis and planning. He was formally honored on January 9, 2010 at the Council of University Transportation Center (CUTC) Annual Banquet and Awards Ceremony in Washington, D.C.
