We are problem-driven, with four core research themes, and a diverse set of research questions within each:
We study how to develop policy and management approaches that enable and leverage technology.
Our research studies systems as diverse as spacecraft, energy, and the disaster response enterprise, and it asks how to design and operate such complex systems.
Our research considers how to manage the inherent risk in a complex system, how to increase its resilience to disruptions, and how to make decisions that support other emergent system properties.
We emphasize leveraging data and developing mathematical models to represent the complex behavior and emergent properties of socio-technical systems.
