Serge Hoogendoorn analyses the individual and collective behaviour of cyclists, pedestrians and drivers of motorised vehicles, his aim being to prevent traffic congestion and traffic jams, to respond adequately to emergency situations, and to avert coronavirus-susceptible concentrations of people. His work has included innovative traffic control systems on Dutch motorways and a monitoring dashboard for SAIL (the Netherlands’ biggest public event) and the King’s Day mass celebrations in Amsterdam. Although not even 50 years of age, Hoogendoorn has a reputation and track record of publications, citations and research grants comparable to that of considerably older researchers. He fully deserves to be the first traffic and transport scientist to be admitted to the Academy.
