Posted in:
The University is bringing together an interdisciplinary team of researchers to address the many challenges of a rapidly evolving "transportation ecosystem."

The University of Arizona has established the new Arizona Transportation Research Institute, or AzTRI, equipped with the interdisciplinary expertise necessary to address the challenges of an ever-evolving transportation ecosystem with an eye toward partnerships and innovation.

AzTRI, operating under the UA's Office for Research & Discovery, includes researchers from across the UA campus. Ann Wilkey, a researcher with the College of Engineering, has been named associate director of the institute and will be working with experts including Larry Head, professor of systems and industrial engineering; Sally Stevens, professor of gender and women studies; and Jeff Burgess, associate dean for research in the Mel and Enid Zuckerman College of Public Health.
