A Sharper Focus on Catastrophe Modeling

You are here

Paolo Bocchini, Daniel Conus, Brian Davison and their colleagues leverage their collaborative experience in probabilistic modeling to sharpen their focus on catastrophe modeling, a discipline not traditionally explored in academia. Led by Bocchini, the university’s Probabilistic Modeling Group has built momentum in its work, developed relationships with collaborators in industry and academia, and secured funding for a variety of projects. Eventually, the group began receiving grants for applications of probabilistic modeling to catastrophe modeling. This prompted Bocchini and his colleagues to narrow their focus and assemble a catastrophe modeling team based on ongoing Lehigh efforts. READ MORE >>
