ASCE honors Gkritza as Fellow
Konstantina (Nadia) Gkritza, Professor at the Lyles School of Civil Engineering, a Purdue University Faculty Scholar, Director of the Sustainable Transportation Systems Research Group, and the Campus Director of the NSF ASPIRE Engineering Research Center (ERC), has been named a fellow by the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) Board of Directors.
Her current research revolves around gaining a deeper understanding of the market acceptance and modeling the adoption of electric vehicles (light-duty, medium and heavy-duty vehicles) at different spatial scales (local and state) and estimating the corresponding environmental and societal impacts. She is currently providing strategic and tactical guidance to Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) and other ASPIRE member DOTs and industries on how they should adapt their current practices for an electrified transportation future. Her team is also tasked with preparing the workforce and communities of the future to understand, operate within, and design for sustainable electric infrastructure.
Prof. Gkritza has been a member of the American Society of Civil Engineers since 2003. She served as a member of the Economics and Finance Committee of the ASCE T&DI Planning from 2010-2015. Since 2011, she has been serving as the Associate Editor of the ASCE Journal of Transportation Engineering in the areas of planning, economics, and modeling.
