Shannon Warchol is a research associate at the Institute for Transportation Research and Education at North Carolina State University in Raleigh, North Carolina. She specializes in simulation analysis of alternative intersections and interchanges. Her current research focuses on microsimulation, signal timing and optimization methods, and alternative intersections and interchanges. Ms. Warchol has consulted with state and local agencies on signal timing and geometric improvements to nearly half a dozen Diverging Diamond Interchanges. She received her B.S. in Civil Engineering from the University of Notre Dame and her M.S. in Civil Engineering from North Carolina State University. Ms. Warchol is a certified Engineering Intern.
Within the engineering community, Ms. Warchol is a member of the TRB Geometric Design Committee (AFB10), and an active friend of the Operational Effects of Geometrics Committee (AHB65), and the Traffic Signal Systems Committee (AHB25). She also serves as a mentor to high school students pursuing studies in engineering.
