Kenneth G. Crowther
Research Fellow, Institute for Information
I joined the Systems Engineering faculty in 2007. Before joining the faculty, I spent several years in this department as a graduate research assistant, and have held several positions with Honeywell and consulting firms such as Industrial TurnAround Corporation. My work and experience has frequently dealt in database systems and system model integration. In such work, I enjoy taking ideas from multiple areas and integrated them to solve a larger system problem, or simply migrating ideas for application to solve a different system need. Aside from research, I enjoy swimming, hiking, and spending time playing and reading books with my wife and children .
My research interests include risk-based decision making, multiobjective tradeoff analysis, and analysis of large-scale systems. Specific research interests include geodatabases systems, multiregional analysis, strategic preparedness, and other topics related to systems engineering or regional science. Currently my research interests are broad, but I hope to focus them as I find niche areas to complete risk-based system analysis work.
