Decision Making Hero Award

Nominations are open for the 2021 Decision Making Hero Award

Congratulations to the winner of the Inaugural Recipient of the Decision-Making Hero Award: Sarah Sun, for leading the development of Exploratory Modeling in our field.

Exploratory Modeling is a much needed reframing of travel analysis forecasting in the face of our world of uncertainty that promotes robust decision making. While not the technical implementer, Ms. Sun is the heart of this project and has led the way in creating an approachable and actionable response to decision-maker inquiry.

The 2020 Decision Making Hero Award Committee was:

  • Jonathan Ehrlrich, Metropolitan Council (Twin Cities MPO)
  • Vladimir Livshits, Maricopa Association of Governments (Phoenix MPO)

The Award

The Decision Making Hero Award shall be given to a travel analysis professional or a team who has made a significant contribution to decision-making.

Nominees will be considered by a three-person award committee and forwarded to the Zephyr Board for approval. Awards are made at the TRB Annual Meeting.
