Karin Brundell-Freij, new adjunct professor at K2
– I have an old love for the academy. The pursuit of excellence is both the strength and curse of the academy. When you are away from it as much as I have been in the past ten years, it's something fancy. The challenge itself to be one of the sharpest and to be in the research front, says Karin.
Appreciates the high pace
Karin has long experience of the academy. She is a lecturer at Lund University and was until 2007 a university lecturer in traffic engineering at the Department of Technology and Society. She has been working for almost 40 years and has had two employers: first university where she began researching and teaching directly after her Master of Science degree - and then a consultant at WSP for the past ten years.
Karin appreciates the high pace in the consulting world. At the same time, she finds that customers' needs and interests set the limit for how much you can move in the absolute front.
– So it's really perfect to do both. To pick the best from two different worlds, at the same time!
Expired resource on K2
Karin Brundell Freij has two years as adjunct professor at Lund University. The service is linked to K2, where Karin, among other things, will participate in the development of public transport research, participate in doctoral supervision and be a competence resource.
– I will keep an eye on trying to link regional issues to the ongoing research front. I am also very encouraged to work in a multidisciplinary environment like here at K2, says Karin Brundell-Freij.
– Karin has unique competence in transport research, both in terms of broader policy issues and scientific method. We are very pleased to have linked her to K2, says John Hultén, manager K2.
