RPI Professor Gets NSF Grant to Study WTC Disaster

Sunday's Times Union reports that Rensselaer Professor William A. Wallace is studying how the utilities serving New York City cooperated in the wake of the September 11 terrorist attack. Dr. Wallace is a professor in the Decision Support and Engineering Systems department, which generally educates both engineers and management students.

Dr. Wallace will be joined in this project by Joe Chow, also from Rensselaer. The team also apparently includes a third person who is unidentified. This study is one of only eight studies of the World Trade Center attack that has been funded by the National Science Foundation so far.
