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.
