Ph.D. student James Jones wins FAA research stipend

Civil and Environmental Engineering Ph.D. student James Jones has been given a $10K research stipend by the Graduate Research Award Program on Public-Sector Aviation Issues for the 2012-2013 academic year. The award will help to fund his research on “Algorithms for Dynamic Re-sequencing of En Route Flights.”

Jones is a student in CEE’s Civil Systems program and is affiliated with the National Center of Excellence for Aviation Operations Research (NEXTOR II), an eight-university consortium researching aviation operations research. The Institute for Systems Research (ISR) is the home for University of Maryland NEXTOR researchers. Jones, whose research interests lie in algorithms for air traffic management, is advised by Associate Professor David Lovell (CEE/ISR).

The award is sponsored by the Federal Aviation Administration of the U.S. Department of Transportation and administered by the Airport Cooperative Research Program (ACRP) of the Transportation Research Board/National Academies.
