Fires on Offshore Platforms: A Risk Analysis Perspective on Piper Alpha

Professor M. Elisabeth Paté-Cornell is the chair of Management Science and Engineering at Stanford University. Her research has focused on the extension of probabilistic risk analysis models to include organizational factors with application to a wide variety of problems such as the management of the tiles of the space shuttle, offshore platforms during oil and gas production, and anesthesia during surgery. She is currently working on mathematical models that allow management of programmatic risks for the development of safety-critical systems.

The Aquarium of the Pacific hosted a forum called “After the Gulf: What Did We Learn?” on October 21 and 22, 2010.
