CEE Ph.D. student James Jones wins WINFORMS Student Excellence Award

James Jones, a Civil and Environmental Engineering Ph.D. student in the Civil Systems program, has won the 2014 WINFORMS Student Excellence Award in Operations Research. WINFORMS is the Washington, D.C. chapter of INFORMS, the Institute for Operations Research and the Management Sciences.

Finalists in the contest presented their work to a WINFORMS board for evaluation on April 21, and were judged on technical merit, originality, impact of research, and clarity of the presentation.

Jones won the competition for his presentation on managing terminal airspace demand uncertainty with en-route speed control. His research is conducted within NEXTOR, the FAA Consortium in Aviation Operations Research. His research interests are in algorithms for air traffic management. Jones received a research stipend from the FAA's Graduate Research Award Program on Public-Sector Aviation Issues during the 2012-2013 academic year. He is advised by Associate Professor David Lovell (CEE/ISR).

Jones receives a WINFORMS trophy and honorarium to attend the annual INFORMS conference in November 2014 in San Francisco.
