2014 University of Wisconsin-Whitewater Outstanding Thesis Award

The School of Graduate Studies and Continuing Education congratulates Hans Hauschild, winner of the 2014 University of Wisconsin-Whitewater Outstanding Thesis Award for his thesis, Rear Facing Child Restraint Device Performance in Side Impact Crashes.

Mr. Hauschild (Burlington, WI) completed his thesis in the Department of Occupational and Environmental Safety and Health under the direction of Dr. Alvaro Taveira in Dec. 2012. His thesis was selected by a committee of graduate faculty reviewers from across the campus who noted its impressive research design, rigorous methodology, and comprehensive data analysis. The results of this study have the potential to improve the safety of children in motor vehicle accidents.

Mr. Hauschild’s thesis has been submitted as UW-Whitewater’s nominee for the Midwestern Association of Graduate School’s (MAGS) Distinguished Master’s Thesis Award for this year’s competition.
