Title: Reliability-Based Design for Terrorist Threats to infrastructure

Personal Profile: Mark G. Stewart is a Distinguished Professor of Civil Engineering, and Director of the Centre for Built Infrastructure Resilience at the University of Technology Sydney. He is the author of Probabilistic Risk Assessment of Engineering Systems; Terror, Security, and Money: Balancing the Risks, Benefits, and Costs of Homeland Security; Chasing Ghosts: The Policing of Terrorism; Are We Safe Enough? Measuring and Assessing Aviation Security; and edited books Climate Adaptation Engineering: Risks and Economics for Infrastructure Decision-making and Engineering for Extremes: Decision Making in an Uncertain World as well as more than 500 technical papers and reports. He has over 35 years of experience in probabilistic risk and vulnerability assessment of infrastructure and security systems that are subject to man-made and natural hazards. Since 2004, Professor Stewart has received continuous Australian Research Council support to develop probabilistic risk-modelling techniques for infrastructure subject to military and terrorist explosive blasts and cost-benefit assessments of counter-terrorism protective measures for critical infrastructure. Articles about his terrorism findings have been published in the New York Times, CNN, Financial Times, Wall Street Journal, The Guardian, and many other media outlets worldwide. He has brought engineering and scientific expertise into the public policy domain. Professor Stewart is the Editor-in-Chief of Structural Safety.
