TPM Resilience Lab Ignite Talk with Marco Cinelli on Assessing resilience of nation wide energy systems

09 december 2021 16:00 t/m 17:00 - Door: Webredactie

In his talk, Marco will present his resilience-related research on the assessment of nation-wide energy systems, i.e., countries. He will discuss (i) the selection of the indicators which characterize the resilience of electricity supply at the national level and (ii) the comparison of the overall performance, based on the selected indicators, of 140 countries according to different normalization and aggregation functions.

He will then introduce the current research activities of his Laboratory (DESIRE), which aims at:

  1. Providing state-of-the-art, adaptable and transparent strategies to formulate, model and support better decision-making;
  2. Developing and applying decision support tools to tackle sustainability and resilience-related challenges;
  3. Training future decision engineers to tackle complex decision-making.

He will also discuss his recently released Multiple Criteria Decision Analysis (MCDA) Methods Selection Software (MCDA-MSS), which is the most comprehensive software for supporting complex decision-making and for recommending MCDA methods.

About Marco Cinelli

Marco Cinelli is an Assistant Professor at Leiden University College (LUC), where he leads the interdisciplinary laboratory Decision Engineering for SustaInability and REsilience (DESIRE). 
His research is focused on the development of Decision Support Systems (DSSs) with Multiple Criteria Decision Analysis (MCDA). The main frameworks he uses include sustainability, resilience and risk assessment, while the main application areas are energy systems and technologies assessment, materials and processes development, and chemical safety.

Before joining LUC, between September 2018 and September 2021, Marco was a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Global Fellow at (i) the Laboratory for Energy Systems Analysis, Paul Scherrer Institute, Villigen PSI, Switzerland, (ii) the Center for Environmental Solutions and Emergency Response (CESER) (formerly National Risk Management Research Laboratory (NRMRL)) of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency in Cincinnati, USA and (iii) the Institute of Computing Science at Poznan University of Technology, Poland. Marco received his Ph.D. in Engineering from the University of Warwick (UK) in 2016.
