Mohammad Miralinaghi and Srinivas Peeta Awarded with ASCE Karlaftis Best Paper Award
Dr. Mohammad Miralinaghi, a post-doctoral researcher at Purdue University and a researcher for CCAT, has been recognized with the 2020 Matthew G. Karlaftis Best Paper Award.
The award is given annually to the best paper that appears in the ASCE’s Journal of Infrastructure Systems. Dr. Miralinaghi and his co-author, Professor Srinivas Peeta, were honored for their paper titled, ‘Design of a Multiperiod Tradable Credit Scheme under Vehicular Emissions Caps and Traveler Heterogeneity in Future Credit Price Perception’. The award committee cited the paper for its novel, pricing-based and market-driven mechanism to manage vehicular emissions in an effort to achieve sustainability for urban transportation infrastructure.
Professor G. Karlaftis, after whom the award is named, passed away unexpectedly in June of 2014. He was an expert in urban transportation, transportation planning and operation, and emergency response. He was also a co-author of an international best-selling book on transportation econometrics and statistics, and the editor-in-chief of Transportation Research Part C: Emerging Technologies.
