Informed decisions, that's what I aim for. The use of information leads to informed, transparent decisions. The amount and availability of information is hardly an obstacle for this anymore. I focus on a diverse set of mechanisms that prohibit or advance informed decision making. Safety and Security is the application domain.
Dr. M.A. Oey (Michel)
My research focuses on complex socio-technological systems, in particular, large-scale, open, distributed systems, such as multi-agent systems. Main topics of interest include architectures, fault-tolerance, scalability, security in the field of simulations/emulations, self-management, automated SLA negotiations, and shared data spaces. I am one of the lead-designers of AgentScape, an open, distributed, scalable agent platform.
Dr. Y. Huang (Yilin)
My research interests include Modeling and Simulation (M&S) methodology and M&S-based design for large-scale socio-technical systems, in particular the subjects related to data-driven M&S and data analytics, distributed simulation, and design for engagement and sustainability. The application domain of my research ranges from transportation and logistics, smart grid, sustainable consumption, to humanitarian innovations. I have a passion for interdisciplinary research. I think that disciplinary research and interdisciplinary research are not orthogonal but complementary.
Dr. T. Comes (Tina)
My interdisciplinary research aims at designing resilience in large scale distributed systems. By harnessing the transformative power of the digital era, networks of communities will be empowered to address the challenges that modern societies face by participating in the agile response to shocks and adaptive planning. My focus is on understanding fundamental principles that connect coordination for short term crisis management and long term adaptive planning. The domain of application for my studies has been risk and crisis management. Since crises are amplifiers, they are a particularly interesting subject: they are events characterized by time pressure and uncertain, conflicting or lacking information, emergence of formal and informal networks, and they typically require improvisation and creativity.
