Matteo Pozzi is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Carnegie Mellon University. His research focuses on probabilistic risk analysis and decision optimization applied to civil infrastructures, integrating fiber optic sensors, and using wireless sensors to measure strain and vibrations. He looks at methods to reliably mitigate risks and extend systems life-spans in civil systems. The analysis of this data and integrated reliability assessment tools can help stakeholders in their decision making processes towards a more sustainable use of resources.

His group is focused on probabilistic models for seismic vulnerability, deterioration, optimal planning for mitigation of extreme events, maintenance and inspection scheduling. Using a computational approach, based on probabilistic graphical models, his research allows for integrated modeling of large heterogeneous systems through extensive use of simulations and analytical approximations.
