I will be giving a seminar to the Sydney University Civil Engineers group today: Tuesday September 21, 2021 from 17:00 to 18:00 AEST. Zoom link for the seminar: https://uni-sydney.zoom.us/j/89457527160
Title: The End of Traffic and the Future of Access
Two decades into the new millennium, transport is becoming interesting again. New technologies are taking root and society is responding; together, these phenomena are changing how people access places and exchange goods. This talk about the future of transport in cities discusses the implications of automation, electrification, sharing, and COVID-19 on travel demands and transport policy.
Prof. David Levinson teaches at the School of Civil Engineering at the University of Sydney, where he leads the Network Design Lab and the Transport Engineering group. From 1999 to 2016, he served on the faculty of the University of Minnesota where he held the Richard P. Braun/CTS Chair in Transportation (2006-2016). Levinson has authored or edited several books, including The 30-Minute City: Designing for Access, The Transportation Experience, and Metropolitan Transport and Land Use: Planning for Place and Plexus, as well as numerous peer reviewed articles. He is the editor of the journal Findings.

Located on the edge of Sydney’s bustling central business district, close to beaches, parks, public transport and shopping districts
Seeking outstanding Academics to provide leadership and help create a world-class, internationally recognised Faculty for research and education excellence
About the opportunity
The School of Civil Engineering is at the forefront of civil engineering education and research. Our systems approach to teaching allows students to graduate with the much sought-after design, research and problem-solving skills needed to create and manage sustainable built and natural environments.
Our research strengths lie in structural engineering, geomechanics and materials, environmental fluid mechanics, transport engineering and complex systems. Our expertise and facilities continue to meet the issues associated with critical infrastructure, sustainability, climate change, water management and the natural environment.
The School has a long tradition of engagement with industry which has led to successful collaborations with many leading national and global companies and government organisations. This coupled with our excellence in analytical and experimental research has played a prominent role in the development of Australian and International Standards relating to many aspects of civil and structural design.
The School of Civil Engineering at the University of Sydney is searching for faculty members at all ranks and in all areas of Civil Engineering. The school seeks to increase the diversity of its faculty and encourages women to apply.
