Sinopoli receives NSF grant to strengthen infrastructure

The National Science Foundation (NSF) awarded CEE Assistant Professor Matteo Pozzi and ECE Associate Professor Bruno Sinopoli $350,000 to investigate the relationships that couple the nation's financial and physical infrastructures and how they might affect the resilience of these interconnected systems. Pozzi and Sinopoli aim to support policy makers and the managers of financial and physical infrastructures so that they can learn how to properly prepare for and respond to extreme events that disrupt daily life. This year, the NSF invested $22.7 million in 15 new projects that will promote the importance of our nation's infrastructures. These projects, funded through the Critical Resilient Interdependent Infrastructure Systems and Processes (CRISP), incorporate knowledge and methods from various fields including, engineering, computational science, social science, and behavioral science. Read more.
