Research summary:

Nuclear Nonproliferation and International Security with a focus non-state actors and proliferator states and the application of anti-neutrinos for Nuclear Energy and Security. A major theme involves the use of soft computing and computational intelligence for advanced reactor safety.  Related topics include promoting climate-related disaster resilience, clean energy technologies, and transition engineering.


Dr. Levy is globally renowned for his original interdisciplinary engineering design and computational intelligence research from a systems perspective for addressing complex system-of-systems problems lying at the confluence of society, and the environment, with a focus on the development of zero-emission clean energy sources, nuclear proliferation and international security, structural health monitoring, autonomous unmanned systems engineering, hazard mitigation, and field robotics.

The recipient of several prestigious research and teaching awards,  Dr. Levy's disaster risk reduction policy insights and technical research uses a wide range of engineering and statistical methodologies in order to promote climate resilience and to manage the cascading impacts of hazards and disasters that cross policy domains, geographic regions, political administrations and sectoral boundaries. As a Full Professor of Disaster Preparedness, Emergency Management and International Security, he has published hundreds of peer reviewed publications and enjoys sharing his insights with scholars around the world.

Ph.D., Systems Engineering, University of Waterloo, Ontario, Canada

Dr. Levy has worked with colleagues from the social sciences, natural sciences and engineering at a number of leading universities around the world including Princeton University, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), the University of California at San Diego (UCSD), the Disaster Prevention Research Institute (Kyoto University, Japan), the University of Sydney, Yale University, the University of Waterloo, and the University of Virginia.
