New associate professor installed; Marco Dozza

Today is SAFER's senior safety researcher Marco Dozza being installed as an associate professor, congratulations!

His academic background is in Electrical Engineering (M.Sc.), Bioengineering (Ph.D.), Active Safety, and Human Factors. His present research focuses on modeling road-user behavior to support the design and evaluation of both active safety systems and automated driving. Current projects within the Road-User Vehicle Interaction group in the Crash Analysis and Prevention research area focus on modeling driver response processes at different automation levels and exploring interactions between vulnerable road users and drivers, particularly at intersections and in overtaking scenarios.

He gave a very intresting installation lecture "Safe road-user interactions: Can automated driving be safe and acceptable for everyone?". SAFER looks forward to continue the successful research and cooperation to make mobility safer with Marco in his new role as associate professor.
