Dr Edward J. Oughton
Research Associate, Centre for Risk Studies
Edward has expertise in modelling interdependent infrastructure networks. Previously his PhD was part of the EPSRC-funded Infrastructure Transitions Research Consortium (ITRC) which focused on developing long-term national infrastructure strategies for the UK. He is now leading the digital communications modelling work with Dr David Cleevely CBE on the EPSRC-funded project entitled Multi-scale InfraSTRucture systems AnaLytics (ITRC Mistral). Edward works closely with ITRC colleagues from the University of Oxford and is a visiting researcher at the School of Civil Engineering & Geosciences at the University of Newcastle. He leads the Risk Centre's research into the management of critical infrastructure failure.
Edward was President (2014/15) and Treasurer (2013/14) of Clare College Graduate Society. He enjoys learning new computational techniques, predominantly using the R statistical language, Matlab or Python.
