David Rios is AXA-ICMAT Chair in Adversarial Risk Analysis and Member of the Spanish Royal Academy of Sciences.
He has formerly held teaching and research positions at SAMSI, Duke, Purdue, Paris-Dauphine, Leeds, Manchester, IIASA, CNR-IMATI and Madrid Technical University. He is Professor of Statistics and Operations Research at Rey Juan Carlos University (on leave).
He has written 13 books, edited 7 special issues and published more than 100 refereed papers in his areas of interest, which include decision analysis, risk analysis, negotiation analysis and Bayesian statistics, and their applications to robotics, aviation safety, critical infrastrtucture protection and wáter resources maangement, among others.
Many major current challenges relate with security issues, e.g. with respect to climate change, terrorism, cybersecurity or aviation safety. In this short course, we shall introduce some of the models that allow us to deal with such problems in a guided tour that will take us from risk analysis to adversarial risk analysis. Ideas will be illustrated with examples from aviation safety, urban security and cybersecurity. Some open problems will be presented.
