Gerald Ullman, Texas A&M Transportation Institute senior research engineer and manager of the work zone and dynamic message sign research program, has been presented with a Regents Fellow Service Award, which is among the most prestigious honors bestowed by The Texas A&M University System Board of Regents. The award was presented during ceremonies held at the Hagler Center on the Texas A&M campus January 30, 2013. The award recognizes employees who have made exemplary contributions to their university or agency and to the people of Texas.
“I am both honored and humbled to be recognized by the Board and Regents and the Chancellor in this manner,” said Ullman. “I’ve been fortunate to be able to work with many outstanding colleagues over my career, and feel this award is a reflection and recognition of all their efforts and support as much anything I have done. I am very grateful to TTI and to the A&M System for the many opportunities I have been afforded.”
Ullman is a nationally recognized expert who has made significant contributions in work zone mobility and safety research for 28 years, beginning his career at TTI as a graduate student in 1984. He has served as principal investigator or co-principal investigator for more than 50 different research projects totaling more than $11 million, and has brought significant recognition to both TTI and to The Texas A&M University System.
