          Travis Glick: NITC Student of the Year
          Portland State University's Travis Glick will be honored as one of the Council of University Transportation Centers students of the year at TRB 2019. Travis is a PhD candidate, graduate teaching and research assistant in civil & environmental engineering at PSU. His undergraduate research on public transit led to his first publication in the TRR as lead author. As a master’s student, he developed multiple methodologies to quantify and visualize transit operations. His ongoing research has led to five peer-reviewed publications, four lectern sessions at TRB annual meetings, and a master’s thesis. Travis is a 2018 NITC student scholar and two-time Eisenhower fellow, and will be presenting research on bus dwell times, bus-bike conflicts and transit modeling at TRB.
