Personal statement

I am a Professor in Risk and Uncertainty Quantification and the Head of the Centre for Intelligent Infrastructure at the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering. I am working in a multidisciplinary environment in collaboration with members from all the university faculties and strong link with world-leading scholars across the world. I am the Chair of the Technical Committee on Simulation for Safety and Reliability Analysis of the European Safety and Reliability Association (ESRA), Chair of the Technical Committee for the 2019 and 2022 European Safety and Reliability Conference (ESREL), Member of the Committee on Probability and Statistics in the Physical Sciences (part of the Bernoulli Society), Academic Adviser to the Commonwealth Scholarship Commission and member of the UK Nuclear Innovation and Research Advisory Board (NIRAB). My current research interests are in:

  • Nuclear safety
  • Resilience Engineering for critical infrastructure
  • Digital twin and efficient simulation methods capable of managing and quantifying uncertainty
  • Developing trustful AI and Learning Algorithms for Imprecise and Bad Data
  • On-line monitoring tools for nuclear systems, Civil infrastructure and aerospace
  • Human Reliability analysis and interaction with autonomous systems
  • Risk communication

Research interests

My primary research interests focus on the general area of risk analysis, uncertainty modelling and quantification, sensitivity analysis, nuclear safety, reliability and availability of complex systems. In particular,  the focus is on the development of verified and efficient stochastic computational methods able to model different representation of the uncertainty and providing trustful reliability analysis and risk assessment.
The numerical implementations have resulted in the development of an open-source general-purpose software package for uncertainty quantification and stochastic analysis.
