Our own Anna Oldani (Ph.D. student) has been chosen to receive the Department of Transportation Student of the Year Award (DOT SOY).
Anna has devoted her Ph.D. into alternative jet fuel research, in the process assembling the first database for alternative jet fuel database for the Federal Aviation Administration (altjetfuels.illinois.edu). The database has been assembled in close collaboration with researchers at the Air Force Research Laboratory including Drs. Tim Edwards and Steve Zabarnick.
