Conference Talk: Mitigation, Resilience and Equity

Director Randolph Hall will present CREATE’s research on “Mitigation, Resilience and Equity: Analyzing and Responding to Homeland Security Threats" at the Institute for Operations Research and the Management Sciences (INFORM)’s conference on business analytics in Houston, on April 3, 2022.  

As the Department of Homeland Security’s first University Center of Excellence, CREATE serves our nation through advanced models and tools for the evaluation of the risks, costs and consequences of threats to human livelihood and through assessment of strategies to mitigate risks and respond to emergencies. The presentation will describe CREATE’s integrated and holistic approach for independent assessment of hazards, both malevolent and unintentional, including terrorism, accidents, and naturally occurring events. CREATE generates models, tools, evaluation methods, software, targeted analyses and communication protocols. We enhance the operations of homeland security agencies, making them more efficient and effective at improving the nation’s security in the face of terrorism, natural disasters and technological accidents. At the same time, CREATE conducts fundamental research that advances the science of risk analysis, economics and operations research in risk, behavioral, economic and decision analysis. Example applications will be provided along with a description of new work studying environmental disasters.
