A year into my first study about the firearm ecosystem
Maurizio Porfiri, professor at NYU Tandon, discusses what he has learned since publishing his study on firearm purchases and regulation.
"Witnessing the fervor of many young collaborators to work on this topic and of young audiences to learn about engineering principles applied to the firearm ecosystem, I have decided to embark on a new academic challenge at NYU Tandon. In the months to come, I will work on creating a doctoral concentration that will bring together engineering principles to the solution of complex societal challenges. I hope this endeavor will inspire students to pursue new research directions that could transform our society for the better."
