NSF award to CEE faculty to enhance infrastructure resilience

Professors Mark Stacey (PI), along with Samer Madanat, and Alexey Pozdnukhov (co-PIs), are investigators on one of several new projects funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF) to address the nation's critical need for more resilient infrastructure and enhanced services. 

The projects are the first in a new NSF activity known as CRISP: Critical Resilient Interdependent Infrastructure Systems and Processes. These three- and four-year projects, each with funding up to $2.5 million, are part of NSF's multiyear initiative on risk and resilience.

The CEE faculty's project is "Multi-scale Infrastructure Interactions with Intermittent Disruptions: Coastal Flood Protection, Transportation and Governance Networks." See abstract.

Stacey is a member of CEE's Environmental Engineering program. Madanat and Pozdnukhov are members of both the Systems and Transportation Engineering programs.
