We have a new docent in the SAFER community: András Bálint
Today we got a new docent working under the SAFER umbrella; András Bálint.
Dr. András Bálint held an appreciated docent lecture about Statistical methods in traffic safety, which provided an overview of challenges and expected future trends related to statistical modelling in traffic safety research, including some examples related to safety benefit assessment, injury severity prediction and long-term consequences of road crashes.
András Bálint obtained a Ph.D. degree in mathematics at VU University Amsterdam in 2009 and had two years of postdoctoral experience at the Department of Mathematics at Chalmers in the field of statistical mechanics and probability. Since 2012, he has worked at the Division of Vehicle Safety at the Department of Mechanics and Maritime Sciences on several international projects related to traffic safety, including the development of safety benefit assessment methods for integrated vehicle safety systems in EU projects and a comparison of vehicle safety in the EU and USA. András is a very appreciated researcher within the SAFER network.
