Dr. Mario P. Brito is a Professor of Risk Analysis and Risk Management at the University of Southampton. His speciality is risk analysis of complex systems (autonomous systems, maritime systems, arctic drilling systems, medical systems etc). His research has focused on the development of novel risk models that consider the technical system and its interaction with human and organisation factors. His recent work has focused on the use of AI algorithms and multi-variate statistical models for advancing risk models for ship navigation, aviation security and autonomous systems.
