This seminar will describe how network-based functional
modeling currently used to describe dependencies when designing,
building, and managing engineered systems can be used in adaptation to
climate change and sea-level rise (CCSLR). Functional modeling may be
one way to affect resilience by providing both graphical and numerical
insights on how and why system-of-systems work, including resilience to
events brought by CCSLR. On-going research and possible applications of
this modeling approach for entrepreneurs towards resilient and more
robust business operation will also be highlighted.
Dr. Pinto received his Ph.D. from the University of Virginia in Systems Engineering. He joined ODU's Department of Engineering Management and Systems Engineering in 2004. His work focuses on multi-disciplinary approaches to risk management in engineered systems and systems engineering, including the effects of security and non-security related disruptions in the continuity of operation of organizations and information systems.
