Recent Scholarship Winners

Roger Lloret-Batlle, a PhD candidate at UC Irvine is studying how building and applying telecommunication and information technologies will aid development of ITS strategies. Roger’s focus is on the potential for V2V and V2I communications to evolve the way that traffic management systems (e.g., traffic signals) may operate. Specifically, his dissertation research is focused on auction-based traffic signal control—a topic that is both as visionary in its scope as it is in pushing the limits of ITS evolution.

Gabriel Yu, also a PhD candidate at UCI is focused on the study of intelligent transportation systems, specifically modeling travelers and shippers’ behavior under partial information, the framework for quantifying traveler’s information, multi-criteria dynamic traffic assignment and ITS project investment decisions under uncertainty. Gabriel has worked with Caltrans, LADOT, LA Metro, Lyft, and Uber in furthering the practical application of his research.
