The number of candidates who have reached the interview stage for the position of TTI Director now includes at least one additional candidate. Hani Mahmassani, the founding Director of the Maryland Transportation Initiative at the University of Maryland, is scheduled for interviews in College Station on August 29-30. Dr. Mahmassani received his PhD in Transportation Systems from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 1982.
“On the announcement it is stated that the search will continue until the position is filled,” said Lee Peddicord, chair of the Search Committee. “As a result, the search committee is obligated to receive, review and meet with those candidates who are qualified. We will continue with this practice until the position is filled or we are otherwise directed by the Board of Regents or the Chancellor.”
In addition to Mahmassani, the names of the nominees include Dennis Christiansen (whose interviews are scheduled for August 17-18), Jon Epps, Oliver McGee, and Kenneth J.Button.
