A hearty congratulations to Phoebe Ho, a recipient of the 2023 National Science Foundation (NSF) Graduate Research Fellowship! The fellowship offers three years of support over five years, including an annual stipend of $37,000. The purpose of the NSF Graduate Research Fellowship Program (GRFP) is to ensure the quality, vitality, and diversity of the scientific and engineering workforce.
Ho is a Ph.D. candidate in Civil and Environmental Engineering, advised by Prof. Joan Walker. She earned a Bachelor of Engineering (Civil Engineering) at the University of New South Wales and her Master of Science (Transportation Engineering) at UC Berkeley.
"I'm honored to be one of the recipients of the NSF Graduate Research Fellowship, and contributing grateful to mentors, advisors, friends, and family who have supported me along the way, says Ho. This fellowship will allow me to pursue research contributing to a broader vision of sustainable, safe, and equitable transportation systems. My research aims to highlight the differential travel experiences over the course of the pandemic using measures of inequity and attitudinal constructs to capture differences in behavioral responses, and to provide insight into potential long-term behaviors for future transportation planning."
