During the past 12 months, Dr. Edward A. Friedman has been active as a Board member of the American University in Bulgaria, as well as teaching a course on Nuclear Energy and Society at Stevens Institute of Technology in Hoboken, NJ where he is an Emeritus Professor of Technology Management. In June, he spoke at a meeting of the MIT Alumni Association of Northern New Jersey on the topic of Nuclear Energy and Global Warming. A Stevens student wrote an article about that event which received wide distribution outside of Stevens on social media.
Dr. Friedman was among the first Fulbright awardees in Bulgaria after the changes – in 1992, before there was a Fulbright Commission in Bulgaria. His achievements, hard work, and dedication earned him a special issue of the computer science journal, Serdica, that was published in honor of his 80th birthday in 2015.
