CTEDD Launches Policy Reports to Inform Practice, Inspire Reforms
CTEDD’s latest initiative is the Policy Report series, which condenses our cutting-edge transportation research into quick and clear summaries that policymakers can readily apply to their work on issues of transportation equity, finance, and planning. Each issue will showcase two CTEDD-funded projects, exploring how the researchers investigate various issues of transportation policy, and presenting practice-oriented solutions to spark change on these issues. Policy Reports will be posted to the CTEDD website, and also distributed in advance to our network of over 2,000 transportation professionals across the nation. Please email c-tedd@uta.edu to be added to our mailing list.

Researcher Highlight: Jacky Loh
Jacky Loh is currently attending Cal Poly SLO as a graduate student in the Civil and Environmental Engineering Blended Master’s program. Jacky is originally from Arcadia, California. He grew interested in civil engineering for two relatively simple reasons. The first was that he always seemed to gravitate towards wanting to help those around him, solve their problems and work on a solution. The second was that he wanted to leave behind some kind of physical legacy, he says, “something that I could look back upon with pride and remember that I helped build/construct it. I thought that engineering, with all its problem-solving skills, would allow me to best achieve those two goals.”
