Luca Podofillini has a Nuclear Engineering degree and Ph.D. in Nuclear Engineering from the Polytechnic of Milan (2004). His current activities include Human Reliability Analysis research and regulatory support tasks for the Swiss Federal Nuclear Safety Inspectorate. His research addresses the development of quantitative models of human performance in industrial systems, with focus on errors in decision-making, dynamic safety assessment, collection of data in simulated emergencies. During his Ph.D., he has worked on multi-criteria reliability optimization and Monte Carlo simulation for safety and reliability applications. He is co-author of about 30 publications on peer-reviewed international scientific journals. In September 2010 he participated to an IAEA mission as member of the International Probabilistic Safety Assessment Review Team (IPSART). He is Chair of the ESRA (European Safety and Reliability Association) Technical Committee for Human Factors in Safety and Reliability (2-year appointment for 2011-2013) and member of the Board of the Human Reliability Analysis (HRA) Society.
