Oregon Transportation Smarts Going to D.C.

In the form of Rob Bertini, PSU Professor, transportation researcher and Director of the Oregon Transportation Research and Education Consortium (OTREC). Per the Oregonian:

Robert L. Bertini will be the deputy administrator of the Research and Innovative Technology Administration, which includes more than 700 employees who study everything from bridge and highway safety to flight delays at airports.

Congratulations, Rob!

Rob will be replaced at OTREC by Jennifer Dill, another PSU transportation prof, who among other things has done very interesting research on where folks in our region ride their bikes.
