Serendipitously, one of my best friends, Engineering Professor Kei May Lau, who used to be at UMass Amherst, and for the past decade has been a Professor at HKUST in Hong Kong, happened to be in Gothenburg, Sweden this past week. She was invited to speak at Chalmers University.
Since I am now back in Gothenburg as a Visiting Professor for several weeks this summer the timing was perfect - thank you Chalmers!
Kei May marveled at the greenery of this city, which is the second largest in Sweden.
congestion pricing is really working!
since sustainability is a theme of my research, I can't help but be inspired here and I thank the School of Business, Economics and Law at the University of Gothenburg for my appointment as a Visiting Professorship of Operations Management!
Coincidentally, the new mayor of NYC, Bill de Blasio, was in Sweden last week and visited Stockholm (I was still in Sicily then) to learn about what Sweden does to maintain such a great record of traffic safety, as reported by The New York Times.
