Profile: Dr. Ed McCormack

I grew up in the San Juan Islands, Washington, and I enjoy fresh seafood.

 

They are good people and it’s a dynamic program. 

 

I’m on a team developing a prototype national freight model. I’m serving as an independent evaluator for U.S. Department of Transportation on their Freight Advanced Traveler Information System (FRATIS) pilot in Texas. I’m in Norway quite a bit this summer, for fun as well as working with the Norwegian Government to develop data driven tools for monitoring truck performance on roadways. We’ve developed analytic tools to manage very large quantities of truck GPS data, and support users of the new USDOT National Performance Management Research Data Set (NPMRDS). And I’m studying how truck operations impact pedestrians and bicyclists with the PacTrans Regional University Transportation Center.
