Emmanuel Donkor (Advisor: Associate Professor Michael R. Duffey) conducted his research on the topic of “Optimal Capital Structure of Project Financed Infrastructure Investments: A Chance Constrained Formulation.”

All of the projects were completed successfully and received high marks from LMI. On October 4, 2011, all three of the LMI Fellows presented the results of their research at the LMI headquarters in McLean, Virginia. About 60 LMI employees, including LMI President and Chief Executive Officer Nelson M. Ford, attended the presentations in person or via conference telephone.
