At the 2015 URI Transportation Center (URITC) Transportation Week Breakfast, Eric Kretsch was awarded a 2015 URI Transportation Center Fellowship. Kretsch was awarded this fellowship for his work on the URITC Funded Project Port of Providence Vulnerability and Resilience Assessment. This project seeks to gain insight on the potential vulnerabilities of the port of Providence to Hurricane events using port stakeholder perceptions. The project also presents long-term resilience strategies to port stakeholders to assess initial reactions to adaptation. The award was given in recognition of the effort and hard work shown while working on this project and in Kretsch’s general studies.
