We are happy to announce a new course on the MOOC platform edX called Leveraging Urban Mobility Disruptions to Create Better Cities, starting on 12 May 2020, featuring the members of our group prof. Francisco Pereira and prof. Carlos Lima Azevedo! It was realized in collaboration with MIT and other international partners. Read below more about the course and visit the official course page for detailed information and registration! We hope to see you there! 🙂Read more “New edX course: Leveraging Urban Mobility Disruptions to Create Better Cities”
Renming Liu joined our group as a Research Assistant. Before joining us, he graduated from the Beijing Jiaotong University (BJTU), obtaining the MSc in System Science degree. He will be working on tradable mobility permits.
We wish him a productive and fun time during his stay with us! 🙂
Ioanna Arkoudi joined our group as a Research Assistant. Before joining us, she graduated from the University of Copenhagen (KU), obtaining the MSc in IT & Cognition degree. She will be working on automatic specification in dynamic behavior modeling and specification through advanced statistics and machine learning methods.
We wish her a productive and fun time during her stay with us! 🙂
A very interesting paper from MIT researchers, including prof. Carlos Lima Azevedo from our group, looked into data from over 300 cities to find differences and similarities across cities. 12 different city typologies came out of the study. You can find the paper titled “A novel global urban typology framework for sustainable mobility futures” here, and the data can be downloaded from here. Find the abstract below.Read more “How different is urban mobility across the world?”
