Anan Sheth receives NSF DDRIG award to study enterprise risks as complex networks
Anan Sheth, doctoral candidate in the Lyles School of Civil Engineering and part of Purdue's Innovation Science Lab was awarded a doctoral dissertation research improvement grant by the Decision, Risk, and Management Sciences (DRMS) program of the National Science Foundation.
Anan is a co-PI with Professor Joe Sinfield on this grant that supports a multi-disciplinary study of risks faced by enterprises. The grant will enable development of an enterprise-agnostic risk inventory and an understanding of the complex risk networks that compound and lead to significant adverse effects for enterprises. It is anticipated that the resulting knowledge resource base will be useful to improve enterprise risk planning and risk intelligence. Overall, the work will contribute to strengthen Anan’s dissertation on developing resilient enterprises.
The Decision, Risk and Management Sciences program falls under the Directorate for Social, Behavioral, and Economic Sciences (SBE) and supports scientific research directed at increasing the understanding and effectiveness of decision making by individuals, groups, organizations, and society.
