Dr. Borowiec is an Associate Research Scientist with TTI's Transportation Planning Program in College Station. He has a variety of experience that primarily includes airport system planning and research, travel demand modeling, and air quality analysis. He has worked with both TxDOT and TCEQ on projects concerning the Texas Airport System Plan, improving traffic assignment results for air quality analysis, developing emissions inventory for airports in Texas, and forecasting demand for various alternatives for both Interstate Highway 35 and State Highway 130 through the Austin region.
Dr. Borowiec has conducted several studies for the Aviation Division of TxDOT that are related to the Texas Airport System. They have included such topics as business aircraft users, hangar development, and private airports. Currently he is assessing the role of general aviation airports in medical service delivery and customer service/satisfaction levels for the Aviation Division. He is also actively involved in providing technical support to the Aviation Division for the regional airport planning meetings held throughout the state in support of the planning and programming functions of the Aviation Division. Dr. Borowiec was also involved in establishing the Texas Airport Manager's Workshop with the Aviation Division and the Texas Airport Management Association (TAMA) that sought to train new airport managers in the basics of running a general aviation airport. He is currently in the second year of work examining issues, curriculums, and institutional interest associated with developing a four-year degree program in aviation with management and professional pilot options in Texas.
Dr. Borowiec has also served as lead researcher and primary author on three research projects funded through the TxDOT research program (RMC 2). These included an evaluation of agricultural airports, an assessment of the relationship between airport roles, service levels, and design standards for general aviation airports, an examination of innovative financing for airport hangars, and the development and application of criteria related to the optimization of the Texas Airport System. In addition, he has been involved with examining the role and impacts of regional jet service on small cities in Texas.
Dr. Borowiec is a licensed private pilot with an instrument rating who holds a Bachelor of Science degree in aeronautical management technology and a Master's of Public Administration with an option in public works management. In addition he has a Ph.D. in Urban and Regional Science, with a specialization in transportation, from Texas A&M University.
