Title: Efficient reliability analysis with imprecise probabilities

Biography: Michael is Professor and Head of the Institute for Risk and Reliability, Leibniz Universität Hannover, Germany, since 2015. He is also part time Professor at the Institute for Risk and Uncertainty, University of Liverpool, in Tongji University and in Tsinghua University, China. He obtained a doctoral degree from the Technical University of Dresden and pursued research at Rice University, supported with a Feodor-Lynen Fellowship from the Alexander von Humboldt-Foundation. From 2007 to 2011 Michael worked as an Assistant Professor at National University of Singapore. In 2011 he joined the University of Liverpool as Chair in Uncertainty in Engineering and Founding Director of the Institute for Risk and Uncertainty. He is serving on the Board of Directors (2020-2028) of the International Association for Probabilistic Safety Assessment and Management, and he is a Co-Chair (2020–2023) of the Risk and Resilience Measurements Committee (RRMC) of the ASCE Infrastructure Resilience Division. Michael is the Editor in Chief of the ASCE-ASME Journal of Risk and Uncertainty in Engineering Systems, and an Editor in Chief (jointly) of the Encyclopedia of Earthquake Engineering (Springer). His Editorial Board Memberships include Probabilistic Engineering Mechanics, Structural Safety, Mechanical Systems and Signal Processing, Computers and Structures, and Engineering Structures. Michael’s research is focused on non-traditional uncertainty models in engineering with emphasis on numerically efficient reliability and risk analysis.
