Dr. M. (Ming) Yang



I am Assistant Professor of Safety and Security Science. My scientific work evolves around reliability, risk, and resilience modelling to support safety and security-related decision-making problems in the process industries and offshore operations. I hold a B.Eng in Chemical and Material Engineering and minor in Management Science, a MSc. in Environmental System Engineering, and a PhD in Oil and Gas Engineering. I am Associate Editor of ACS Journal of Chemical Health and Safety, Subject Editor of Process Safety and Environmental Protection, Safety in Extreme Environments, Editorial Board Member of Journal of Loss Prevention in the Process Industries, Engineering Applications of Artificial Intelligence, and Hygiene and Environmental Health Advances. I am listed in the Elsevier BV database 2020 and 2021 top scientists (world's top 2%) in the subject area of "Energy-Civil Engineering-Enabling & Strategic Technologies".

Research Interests

  • Quantitative resilience modeling
  • Dynamic risk assessment
  • Process safety and process resilience
  • Marine transportation safety 
  • Environmental management 


My research aims to create knowledge in two main areas: a) fundamental and conceptual knowledge of risk and resilience, risk and resilience assessment and management, b) knowledge with respect to the application of risk and resilience modelling in various areas such as oil and gas, marine transportation, construction, public security, etc. My current research topics include: a) resilience engineering of complex systems, b) dynamic risk management for process systems, c) condition monitoring-based asset integrity management, d) risk-based approaches for engineering design and operation, e) emerging process safety and security problems in the context of digitalization and energy transition.
