Travis Graig’s ’17 and Christopher Rizzo’s ’15 article ‘Data Challenges in Dynamic, Large-Scale Resource Allocation in Remote Regions’ was recently accepted for publication in Safety Science, the #3 journal for international safety research*. Both Graig and Rizzo are 2015-16 McDevitt Undergraduate Research Fellows in Information Systems.
Travis’ analysis of Bering Strait vessel transits was also highlighted for its contribution in identifying missing and conflicting data in the variety of data sets he analyzed in his research.
Chris’ work to develop a resource allocation database for Arctic oil spill response was heralded by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and the U.S. Coast Guard, as it modeled the data, resources and equipment necessary to respond to a catastrophic oil spill in the Arctic.
Congratulations Travis and Chris!
