Professor Sánchez-Silva’s is PhD and Full professor at Universidad de Los Andes (Bogotá, Colombia). His area of expertise is risk analysis to support decision-making in engineering under uncertain conditions. He has experience estimating risk in complex problems where information is partial, incomplete, and difficult to quantify, and therefore, traditional risk modeling and engineering methods can only be applied partially. Some of his current areas of research include flexibility, adaptability, resilience, and sustainability of infrastructure systems. He has published over 100 refereed journal papers and two books, and he belongs to several journal editorial boards and international associations.
