Dr. Kuhn has diverse and extensive experience in the conduct and delivery of cutting edge research results. As Head of the System Reliability Division of the Texas A&M Transportation Institute, Dr. Kuhn leads a team of researchers in the areas of corridor management, advanced traffic management applications, and connected and automated infrastructure. Dr. Kuhn is considered a leader in the field of TSMO, ATDM, and ATM through over a decade of specific research. She is involved in the delivery of Regional Operations Forums and Summits and Capability Maturity Framework workshops through an FHWA IDIQ contract, and previously delivered workshops for FHWA’s ATDM knowledge and technology transfer program. She leads NCHRP 03-114 – Planning and Evaluating Active Traffic Management Strategies which has developed guidance for agencies on this innovative topic, and has assisted FHWA in the development and direction of the ATDM program, the investigation of best practices for dynamic shoulder use, and the delivery of knowledge and technology transfer on the topic to the transportation community at large. She was also involved in the development of the traffic management capability maturity framework and the development of similar frameworks for non-recurring congestion, all of which implemented the results of the SHRP2 L01 and L06 projects to help agencies or regions assess current capabilities with respect to traffic management. She has developed managed lanes guidance for TxDOT, and has also applied her TSMO, ATM, ICM, and managed lanes expertise to projects for the New York State Department of Transportation, the North Carolina Department of Transportation, and the Minnesota Department of Transportation, assessing the feasibility of managed lanes and ATM strategies in congested corridors to provide mobility enhancements and alternatives. She currently serves on the Technical Advisory Committee of the National Operations Center of Excellence and is a member of the TSM&O Council with ITE.
