Fujian Province Scholar Aims for Software to Ease Congestion
Zirui “Ray” Huang comes from Fujian Province, China. He entered the CMP in 2017, and his senior thesis was named one of the top 100 at Tongji University in July 2018.
Just one year into the CMP, he has already had two technical papers accepted by the Transportation Research Board’s annual conference.
Now on the UA campus for the second year of his ME, he is happy to meet people with whom he attended classes via video.
Ray plans to pursue a career in data and software development, addressing urban traffic movement and congestion issues.I have amazing professors and friends and am involved in very interesting research, which is laying a solid foundation for my future studies.
Shanghai Native Focuses on Intelligent Systems – and Swimming!
Meiyu “Melrose” Pan was born in Shanghai. She started the CMP in fall 2017 and graduated from Tongji University in July 2018.
