Congratulations to the John S. Adams Award Winners

April 21, 2016

Two students at the Humphrey School of Public Affairs are being recognized with the John S. Adams Award for Excellence in Transportation Research and Education, for outstanding academic achievement in the field. They are:

Alireza Ermagun, a Master of Urban and Regional Planning candidate, advised by associate professor Greg Lindsey.

Kirti Das, a PhD in Public Affairs candidate, advised by associate professor Yingling Fan.

The award is named in honor of Humphrey School Professor Emeritus John S. Adams, in recognition of his contribution to transportation-related research, education, and outreach activities in the planning and policy area.

The award is given each year by the University of Minnesota’s Center for Transportation Studies to up to two students—one master’s and one doctoral candidate—based upon the students’ work in transportation research, writing, and other educational activities relating to transportation. 

Adams presented the awards to Ermagun and Das at a CTS luncheon Wednesday April 20. Each student received a $1,000 prize and a commemorative plaque.
