Marilia Ramos, Ph.D.
RESEARCH SCIENTIST AT THE B. JOHN GARRICK INSTITUTE FOR THE RISK SCIENCES, UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA LOS ANGELES (UCLA), USA.
EXPERTISE IN SAFETY RISK ASSESSMENT AND HUMAN RELIABILITY.
With a Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering, accumulated experience in performing Quantitative Risk Analysis for Oil Refineries' licensing projects, expertise in Human Reliability Analysis research and applications and autonomous systems safety, I am passionate about developing, adapting, and applying risk assessment methods to contribute to a safer world.
As a Research Scientist at UCLA, I manage and conduct research projects on complex systems modeling, risk assessment, and human reliability.
You can always find me in my office - unless I'm biking around L.A, or looking for the newest vegan bakery in town.
