Student receives prestigious transportation fellowship

July 26, 2013

The U.S. Department of Transportation's Federal Highway Administration has awarded the Dwight David Eisenhower Transportation Fellowship to Shawn Salisbury, a graduate student in the Department of Mechanical Engineering.

The award recognizes outstanding students pursuing degrees in transportation-related disciplines, and aims to attract the brightest minds in the field to the transportation workforce. 

Salisbury's research seeks to understand the effects that various combinations of fuel cell vehicle and electric vehicle might have on automakers’ costs of compliance with California Zero Emissions Vehicle Program objectives. By understanding its costs and benefits, Salisbury will be able to communicate whether the PFCV could be a vehicle that can help automakers to meet CARB and CAFE standards at lower costs of compliance than conventional battery and fuel cell powered vehicles.
