Congratulations to Justin Tyndall, whose joint work with Cody Nehiba was awarded the Stough-Johansson Springer Award. Their paper, titled “Highways and Pedestrian Deaths in US Neighborhoods”, was deemed the best paper presented by an early-career scholar at the 62th Annual Meeting of the Western Regional Science Association.
Each year the Springer Prize is awarded for the best paper presented at the WRSA’s Annual Meeting by an early-career scholar. The prize consists of a certificate and selection of Springer books as chosen by the winner. The competition is judged by the co-editors of the Association’s official journal, The Annals of Regional Science.
More about Justin’s research in pedestrian safety, particularly in the context of Hawaiʻi, can be found on his recent UHERO blog article.
