Lighthouse postdoctoral program was launched last year, and this winter's recruitment process has led to the employment of five post doctors divided into four different universities.

The post doctors and their research areas are:

  • Ruihu Lu - Wind assisted propulsion of merchant vessels (Chalmers)
  • Miachel Tanko - Waterborne Urban Mobility (KTH)
  • Carl Sandberg - Maritime science with emphasis on leadership and sustainable working life in shipping (Linnaeus University)
  • Anastasia Christodoulou - Business administration / logistics with a focus on the demand aspects of RoRo shipping (Gothenburg University, School of Business, Economics and Law)
  • Marta Gonzalez-Aregall - Environmental control charges and incentive structures for ports (Gothenburg University, School of Business, Economics and Law)

During the year, the post doctors will be introduced more thoroughly at the Lighthouse website, but the first chance to meet them will be in Stockholm.
