UCLA Luskin Research Scholar Madeline Brozen has been awarded the 2014 Lee Schipper Memorial Scholarship, created to help recipients contribute to the advancement of sustainable transport and urban mobility.
Brozen, who is program director of the Lewis Center’s Complete Street’s Initiative, is one of two scholarship recipients through sustainable transport program EMBARQ. The scholarship was created in honor of Dr. Leon J. Schipper, co-founder of EMABARQ and a recognized researcher who contributed to the fields of sustainable transport and energy efficiency.
“After learning I was selected as a Schipper scholar, I was shocked and delighted,” Brozen said in an announcement released by EMBARQ today. Her research will “challenge the way streets are currently evaluated, examining the Level of Service (LOS) measure for assessing street performance.” Brozen will focus on infrastructure that moves away from a car-oriented design to one that supports walking and bicycling.
You can learn more about Brozen’s research through this Q&A published on EMBARQ’s TheCityFix.
Brozen was selected as an awardee out of a pool of 82 applicants from 26 countries. She will present her findings at the Transforming Transportation 2015 conference, co-organized by EMBARQ and the World Bank.
