InTrans faculty affiliates among those to be honored with university awards

Two Institute for Transportation (InTrans) faculty affiliates are among the 60 Iowa State University (ISU) faculty and staff that will be recognized this fall for winning one of the university’s annual awards.

Sri Sritharan, the Wilkinson Chair of Interdisciplinary Engineering and assistant dean for the College of Engineering, and Simon Laflamme, professor of civil, construction, and environmental engineering and Waldo W. Wegner Professor in Civil Engineering, will both be recognized at the fall ceremony.

Sritharan will receive the title of distinguished professor along with four other professors at ISU. The title is ISU’s highest academic honor, recognizing a faculty member whose accomplishments in research have had a significant impact on their discipline and who has demonstrated outstanding performance in at least one other area of faculty responsibility.

Laflamme will receive the Mid-Career Achievement in Research Award along with two other faculty members. The award recognizes a faculty member who has demonstrated exemplary performance or scholarship in research and/or creative activity as documented by peers or experts in the field.
