Dr. Judy Perkins

Bio

  • Dr. Perkins holds a BS, MS, and PhD in civil engineering from Southern University, University of Illinois (Urbana-Champaign), and Georgia Institute of Technology, respectively. At the master's level, her area of specialty was in reinforced concrete structures; at the doctoral level, it was in transportation engineering. Since 1992, Dr. Perkins' research has focused on statewide intermodal transportation planning, transportation logistics, hurricane evacuation analyses, and the impact of economic development as it relates to transportation. Moreover, Dr. Perkins has accumulated extensive experience in the development of survey design, data collection, state-level transportation planning, and the refinement of economic development methodologies used to evaluate transportation-related activities. Dr. Perkins' extensive record of publication extends into both the national and international transportation and engineering education arenas.
