Cailin’s current research is related to evaluating the fuel savings and environmental impacts of lightweighting on a variety of vehicle modes, ranging from freight trucks to container ships. She has developed a model that uses life cycle assessment tools to analyze the influence that mode and distance have on the degree to which lightweighting impacts freight transportation life cycle burdens.
