Ashley Stafford, a graduate student in Clemson University’s Human Factors Psychology Ph.D. program, has been named a Dwight David Eisenhower Graduate Fellow. This is a prestigious honor for Ashley and for Clemson.
The Eisenhower Transportation Fellowship program is administered by the Federal Highway Administration, a division of the U.S. Department of Transportation. The fellowship program is a way to reward “rising stars” in transportation-related disciplines. The fellowships “advance the transportation workforce by attracting the brightest minds in the field” and they enable students to pursue graduate degrees in transportation-related fields at the university of their choice. The fellowships are named after President Eisenhower in honor of his efforts to create the interstate highway system. Eisenhower considered the creation of interstate highways to be one of the most important achievements of his two terms in office, and historians agree.
Ashley is currently conducting research on the visual effects of the glare that drivers sometimes experience from the headlights of oncoming traffic at night. She works in the lab of Prof. Rick Tyrrell.
