Bio

Dr. Ali Mosleh is Distinguished Professor
and holder of the Evelyn Knight Chair in Engineering at the University of
California in Los Angeles.  Prior to that he was the Nicole J. Kim Eminent
Professor of Engineering and Director of the Center for Risk and Reliability at
the University of Maryland. He was elected to the US National Academy of
Engineering in 2010, and is a Fellow of the Society for Risk Analysis, and the
American Nuclear Society, recipient of several scientific achievement awards,
and consultant and technical advisor to numerous national and international
organizations, including appointment by President George W. Bush to the U.S.
Nuclear Waste Technical Review Board, a position in which he continued to serve
in the administration of President Obama. He conducts research on
methods for probabilistic risk analysis and reliability of complex systems and
has made many contributions in diverse fields of theory and application. These
include risk and reliability of hybrid systems of hardware, human and software;
complex systems prognostics and health monitoring with limited information;
dynamic systems reliability; common cause failure analysis;
accident sequence precursor methodology; Bayesian methods
of inference with uncertain evidence; reliability growth prediction; methods
for software reliability and cyber security; cognitive models for human
performance in complex systems; and models of the influence of organizational
factors on system reliability and safety. On these topics he holds several patents,
and has edited, authored or co-authored over 450 publications including books,
guidebooks, and technical papers. In 2013 he received the American Nuclear
Society Tommy Thompson Award for his numerous contributions to improvement of
reactor safety. Dr. Mosleh has led many major studies on risk and safety of
complex systems such as space missions, nuclear power plants, commercial
aviation, communication networks, and healthcare systems. He has chaired or
organized numerous international technical conferences and is on the editorial
board of several technical journals.
