I have been granted a one year sabbatical leave by the University of Idaho for the academic year 2004. The following text is excerpted from my sabbatical leave application:
I would like to take advantage of invitations from a major U.S. government research laboratory, two other government agencies, and two engineering consultancies to expand my knowledge of and experience with traffic control systems and take a sabbatical leave during the academic year 2003-2004, my first leave since coming to the university in 1986. My major objectives during this leave would be to assemble case studies on traffic control systems that can be used in my research and teaching program at the university and develop applications for our Controller Interface Device that can be integrated into these case studies.
This request for UTC funding would cover a portion of my expenses associated with this leave.
