This month, Prof Patrick Reed from Cornell College is visiting the University to give a seminar on his work on engineering design and decision support software to reduce vulnerabilities in regional water supply.
Prof Reed’s primary research interests relate to sustainable water management given conflicting demands from renewable energy systems, ecosystem services, expanding populations, and climate change.
The tools developed in Dr. Reed’s group bridge sustainability science, risk management, economics, multi objective decision making, operations research, computer science, and high performance computing have been used broadly in governmental and industrial application areas (e.g., civil infrastructure planning and management, airline logistics, and US satellite constellation design and management).
His open source and free academic software related to multiobjective optimization has thousands of users across the world.
