Karim Chatti to lead American Society of Civil Engineers Journal of Transportation Engineering - Pavements
Karim Chatti of Michigan State University is the new editor-in-chief of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) Journal of Transportation Engineering (JTE), Part B: Pavements.
He is a professor of civil and environmental engineering and the director of the University Transportation Center for Highway Pavement Preservation. In 2015, MSU became the first university in the country to have a University Transportation Center for the preservation of highway pavement.
“This is a big honor for me, given that the ASCE journals are the oldest in the field,” Chatti explained. “Originally, the journal was part of the proceedings of the American Society of Civil Engineers, first published in 1873.”
Chatti is a past associate editor of the original JTE and the newer Part B: Pavements publication.
He was elected by the ASCE board of governors in May. He replaces Dallas Little, the Snead Chair Professor and Regents Professor in the Zachry Department of Civil Engineering at Texas A&M University.
