Background

My Research

The transition to more and more digitalized societies is both an opportunity and a challenge. To support decision-makers in this new era of communication and collaboration my research aims at bridging the gap between formal analytic models and understandable, ready-to-use evaluations. My resarch aims at designing approaches, systems and tools that enable decision-makers to collect, process, communicate, share and evaluate data from various sources and to translate the data into information that they need to make informed decisions. To this end, I combine research in the field with a strong analytical background.

Topics

  • From communities to global disaster resilience
  • Decision support in crisis and emergency management - focus on Humanitarian Logistics
  • Risk management for critical infrastructure disruptions: vulnerability, interdependencies and cascading effects
  • Risk management, coordination and collaboration in complex supply networks

Areas of Interest

  • Decision support in complex situations
  • Measuring resilience and reliability of infrastructures and organizations
  • Serious games and training
  • Distributed decision-making and agent-based systems
  • Scenario management (prioritisation, filtering, pruning, updating)
  • Interdependent, dynamic and sequential decision-making
  • Cognitive biases and computer-based de-biasing techniques (visualisations, natural language report generation, reliability assessments)
