Research topics

  • Statistical techniques and artificial intelligence methods for the prompt (on-line) detection and diagnosis of faults in safety-critical systems (in particular, for energy production).
  • Advanced (deterministic and probabilistic) methods for the modeling, simulation and analysis of safety-critical, dynamic systems and infrastructures (in particular, for energy production and distribution) under uncertainties, in order to assess (efficiently) their associated risk, vulnerability and resilience.
  • Uncertainty modeling and quantification techniques for the reliability analysis and risk assessment of safety-critical components and systems (in particular, for energy production and safety).
