On May 15, Center Graduate Research Associate Nobuhiko Daito was honored with the John E. Peterson Memorial Scholarship in Public Finance Policy. This scholarship is made possible by Mary Peterson and her family, in memory of their husband and father, John, a long-time faculty member and role model for all policy students.
Center Director Jonathan Gifford noted that Daito’s dissertation tackles a topic that was of great interest to John Peterson: public-private partnerships (or PPPs) for delivering infrastructure. Daito’s dissertation investigates private investment in U.S. highways using PPPs, how costs differ when they are used, and how their use affects broader social well-being. Daito is a dynamic and creative scholar, and we expect great things from him in the future. Congratulations Nobuhiko!
