Background and activities

In theory there is no difference between theory and practice. In practice there is.


I'm currently interested in model engineering, with a special focus on probabilistic models for the assessment of performance of complex technical systems.

I'm working on mathematical foundations (including complexity issues), assessment algorithms and heuristics, modeling languages and modeling methodologies. I'm also developing software tools.


I am currently teaching at NTNU and Ecole Centrale de Paris master and PhD level courses on Model-Based System Engineering and Safety & Reliability Engineering.

I am also teaching a course on (an Introduction to) Complex System Engineering for the 1rst year students of Ecole Centrale de Paris (500 students). This course is duplicated at Beihang University/Centrale Pékin.


The publication list below is highly incomplete. I gave up filling the Cristin data-base.

You can find an updated list of publications and more information about my work on my webpage of the AltaRica Association
