Introduction

Dr. Justin P. Schorr earned his undergraduate degree in Civil Engineering from Northwestern University in 2008 and his Master’s (2010) and Doctorate (2015) degrees from The George Washington University (GW) in Washington, DC. Dr. Schorr also completed specialized training in Collision Reconstruction from The Northwestern University Center for Public Safety and Event Data Recorders (EDR). He is a certified drone pilot licensed by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). Dr. Schorr’s most valuable training, however, comes from a lifetime of education provided by his father and grandfather – both of whom are Collision Reconstruction Professionals.

Dr. Schorr has been an active member of the academic research community publishing four peer-reviewed journal articles and eight refereed conference papers in the field of transportation safety and driver behavior. While still at GW, Dr. Schorr provided one-on-one presentations at the request of Mr. Ed Gillespie (former Gubernatorial Candidate in Virginia), Major John Bell (Delegate 87th District, Virginia), David Birtwistle (CEO Northern Virginia Transportation Alliance), and Congresswoman Barbara Comstock (10th District, Virginia) and was intimately involved in giving back to the community as he delivered Keynote Addresses in 2013, 2014, and 2015 at GW’s Science and Technology Engineering Day and in 2013 for Schools Without Walls. Dr. Schorr continues to serve as an adjunct professor and the lead researcher at the Vehicle Instrumentation and Driver Simulation Laboratory at GW.

Dr. Schorr’s specialties are focused mainly in three areas: transportation engineering, applied mathematics, and intelligent systems engineering. Specific to collision reconstruction and intelligent vehicles, Dr. Schorr is well trained in traffic engineering and highway safety, highway design, intelligent transportation systems, vehicle dynamics, real world crash investigation, crash investigation and analysis, vehicle standards and crash test analysis, and intelligent control systems – and has offered courses at GW such as Sustainable Urban Dynamics, Intelligent Transportation Systems, Highway Design, and Transportation Engineering.
