Engineering Risk Research Group

ERRG Summary

ERRG is a research group within the School of Engineering at Stanford University. Professor Elisabeth Paté-Cornell created the group more than 20 years ago, and continues to direct it.

Short bios of Professor Paté-Cornell, her current students, and her past students can be found by  here.

Past academic work of members of ERRG can be found here

The mission of ERRG is the analysis, mathematical modeling, and management of the safety of engineering systems using probabilistic methods and systems analysis. More recently, the members of the ERRG have extended the application of these methods to the domains of medical operations and devices, national security, and the strategy of firms in the financial industry with the objective of identifying the most cost effective risk reduction measures within these complex systems. Technical, organizational, and strategic solutions are considered and decision analysis is often used to make the final choice among a spectrum of risk mitigation options.
