Dr. Yoshifumi Yamamoto, lead modeler, model development, presents “An analytical approach towards modeling the recovery and reconstruction after the 2011 Tohoku Earthquake and Tsunami.”
Dr. Maurizio Gobbato, senior modeler, model development, presents “Uncertainty quantification and sensitivity analysis of earthquake casualties.”
Brian Owens, senior director, business solutions, is a panelist on “Utilizing modeling platforms and multiple model providers to create your own view of risk.”
