My research interest lies in the area of resilience engineering and how it can be operationalized in safety sensitive domains when confronted with an accident investigation. That is, how resilience engineering could be utilized to help understand causation and develop a more proactive approach to preventing accidents. Additionally, by applying the perspective of complexity theory when combined with resilience engineering methods, we may gain a better understanding of failure in complex socio-technical systems.
