Samuel Labi, Ph.D., A.M.ASCE, is the recipient of the Frank M. Masters Transportation Engineering Award for his outstanding and innovative work in advancing the area of transportation infrastructure asset management systems. Associate professor of Civil Engineering in the Lyles School of Civil Engineering at Purdue University, Labi is an accomplished researcher, educator, and engineer who has attained prominence through research and teaching in areas that are challenging to the current infrastructure environment, including transportation safety and security, sustainability and resilience, funding uncertainties, and higher use expectations. In rising to these national challenges, Labi has tailored his research toward enhancement management of transportation assets, which helps engineers and managers not only make more informed and systemic decisions but also render a better account of the stewardship of infrastructure. A member of Sigma Xi and Chi Epsilon, Labi earned the K.B. Woods Award for Best Paper in Design and Construction from the Transportation Research Board in 2008, the Bryant Mather Award for Best Paper in Concrete Materials from the American Society of Testing and Materials in 2007, and the Milton Pikarski Award for Best National Ph.D. Dissertation in Transportation (Science and Technology category) from the Council of University Transportation Centers and sponsored by the American Roads and Transportation Builders Association in 2002.
