Academic Areas: Safety and Resilience of Infrastructure Systems

Research Interests:

Min Ouyang received his B.S. degree in Automation from the Wuhan University of Science and Technology, Wuhan, China in 2005, and his Ph.D. degree in Systems Engineering from the Huazhong University of Science and Technology, Wuhan, China, in 2009, followed by postdoctoral research in Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Rice University, Texas, USA from 2009 to 2012. He is currently an associate professor in department of systems science and engineering, Huazhong University of Science and Technology. His research interests include safety and resilience of infrastructure systems, and simulation and modeling of interdependent infrastructure systems. Dr. Ouyang was elected to the program of “ChuTian Scholar” in Hubei Province in 2012, and is the principal investigator of four projects respectively granted by National Natural Science Foundation of China, Natural Science Foundation of Hubei Province, and Fundamental Research Funds for the Central Universities. He has published more than 25 SCI-indexed peer-reviewed journal papers, which are well cited by researchers in the fields of safety engineering, risk analysis and management, reliability and resilience engineering, infrastructure engineering and so on. His review paper on modeling and simulation of interdependent infrastructures systems published in Reliability Engineering & System Safety is an ESI highly cited paper and also a hot paper in ISI web of science. Dr. Ouyang was among the “Most Cited Chinese Researchers in 2014” and “Most Cited Chinese Researchers in 2015”(Safety, Risk, Reliability and Quality)
