Center for Connected and Automated Transportation Principal Investigator, Dr. Mohammad Miralinaghi, has received a certificate of appreciation from Dr. Gregory Rowangould, the paper review chair of the Air Quality and Greenhouse Gas Mitigation Committee (AMS10). This committee falls under the Transportation Research Board of the National Academies and was awarded during the 2022 TRB Annual Meeting in Washington DC. Dr. Miralinaghi’s recognition was for his role as a paper review team member. Dr. Rowangould also serves as the Director of the Transportation Research Center and as an Associate Professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of Vermont.
“I am honored to receive this award form the AMS10 Committee. I am motivated to continue my work in disseminating, enhancing, and promoting transportation research to a wider audience”Mohammad Miralinaghi, Ph.D., Research Associate —

Dr. Rowangould cited Dr. Miralinaghi for his “outstanding support and dedication to the paper review process” in his role as the paper handling team member of the AMS10 Committee. The review process has been influenced by the COVID-19 pandemic as articles focused on its impacts on travel and emissions were given due attention. The committee received more than 100 papers for review, with each member handling more than 10 papers. This TRB Committee is of major interest to the Center’s mission as one of the key anticipated benefits of connected and automated vehicles (CAVs) is increased mobility and reduced emissions/greenhouse gases (GHGs). Some of the papers that were reviewed by the Committee this year addressed the air quality/GHG issue in the context of CAVs. Dr. Miralinaghi was recognized by the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) with the 2020 Matthew G. Karlaftis Best Paper Award.
