AZITE June Breakfast Series – NAU Research Updates

The heat is back and you know what that means… It’s time for the Arizona ITE Summer Breakfast Series!  This year’s theme is focused on updates in university research.

Dr. Brendan Russo, Assistant Professor of Civil Engineering at NAU will kick off the series as he discusses current and recent transportation research at NAU. Topics will include application of vehicle-based sensors for assessing pavement conditions, development of a resilience metric for bridge management, Arizona dust storm modeling and prediction, analysis of factors affecting the frequency and severity of freight-related crashes along the Arizona I-10 corridor, and analysis of the impacts of distracted pedestrians on traffic safety and operations at signalized intersections.

Dr. Russo has 10 years of transportation-related research, teaching, and professional work experience, and he holds a B.S. and M.S. in Civil Engineering from Wayne State University and a Ph.D. in Transportation Engineering from Iowa State University.  His research has been primarily focused on traffic safety; specifically safety performance and economic assessments of roadway design features, road user behavior, occupant protection, and econometric methods for transportation data analysis.

Next in our series is the UA Research Update in July and then ASU’s in August!

We look forward to seeing you on the 20th at ASU Karsten Golf Course.
