WRN welcomes Dalhousie University

Published on Feb 01, 2013

The Willis Research Network today welcomes Dr. Andrew Rau-Chaplin from Dalhousie University into the network.

Dr Rau-Chaplin directs the Dalhousie University Risk Analytics Lab.  Situated in the Faculty of Computer Science, the lab's core competencies are in high performance computing (HPC) and analytics, particularly risk analytics. Research projects explore the design and implementation of systems for quantifying, managing, and optimizing both individual risks and portfolios of risk with a particular focus on event based risk modeling, insurance and reinsurance analytics, natural and man-made catastrophic events and their potential impact, and applications in policy, planning, and emergency response.

This is an exciting announcement for the Willis Research Network, providing an area of expertise that supplements our existing activity and considerably strengthens the WRN’s Core Technologies and Platforms hub.

About WRN

As economic, social and environmental uncertainties increase, institutions and populations seek greater resilience to support sustainable growth. Science and insurance lay at the heart of understanding, managing and sharing these risks, building more secure futures at local and global scales.

The Willis Research Network (WRN) operates across the full spectrum of risk from natural catastrophe, to legal liability, financial and security issues linked across driving themes: Resilience, Security & Sustainable Growth; Managing Extremes; Insurance & Risk Management and Mastering the Modelled World.

All Members and activities are united by a common aim: improving resilience by integrating first class science into operational and financial decision-making across public and private institutions.
