Research in Resilient Complex Engineered Systems


This research addresses challenges in the design, analysis, and operation of failure resistant systems. Resilient systems continue to operate within their prescribed performance envelopes, or at least safely, even in the presence of transient, permanent, or systematic failures. Complex engineered systems can be found in all industries, from the electrical power generation and distribution to multi-scale embedded systems. Our research methodology includes methods from complex networks, reliability engineering, and hazard analysis.
