Bio

Sunhee Baik holds B.A. in Information and Industrial Engineering from Yonsei University, M.S. in Industrial and System Engineering from Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST), and Ph.D. in Engineering and Public Policy from Carnegie Mellon University. She works as a postdoctoral researcher with Professor M. Granger Morgan and Alex Davis. Her interests focus on policy problems where technology, science, and public perceptions play a central role. Her current research focuses on characterizing energy system vulnerabilities from natural disasters and emerging threats, obtaining informed judgments of individuals about their economic and social preferences for reliable electric services in the event of a large blackout of long duration, and enhancing the reliability and resilience of the power system without addressing issues of social equity.

Bio

Barry has a B. Arts & Sci in mathematics from McMaster University (Canada), and an M. Sc. in Mathematics and the Foundations of Computer Science from the University of Oxford. He completed his PhD in Engineering & Public Policy in 2017. He works with Janel Hanmer (University of Pittsburgh) on the PROMIS-Preference (PROPr) scoring system, a measurement tool that allows researchers and analysts to quantify preferences for health. With Baruch Fischhoff, Alex Davis, Stephen Broomell, and Janel Hanmer, Barry also works on fundamental problems of preference measurement, such as quantifying the effects of data exclusion practices on subsequent analyses. In addition, with Baruch Fischhoff, Alex Davis, and Stephen Broomell, he has worked on applying methods from mathematical psychology to study risk perception of natural hazards.
