Alumni Story: Lawrence Fabian ’67

My career has been as a city and regional planner, always specialized in the spatial distribution of activities and travel, which are amenable to quantitative analysis. With the expansion of computing hardware and software, such work has expanded to increasingly sophisticated simulations and visualizations. I worked for many years on Boston's Big Dig providing input to the traffic simulation model which guided its planning, design and construction. I am proud that the Greenway now adds value to live in Beantown. Quantitative thinking can have real impacts on public policies and projects. (10/2014)
