Welcome to CRISP

This is the web home of the multi-disciplinary center within Purdue's College of Engineering called the Center for Resilient Infrastructures, Systems, and Processes (CRISP).

Our society is crucially dependent on several interdependent critical infrastructure systems and processes for operating these systems. These are subjected to various kinds of hazards and faults, both natural and malicious, often leading to user-visible failures. Our center provides the scientific method to analyze the failure modes of the infrastructures and provide engineering tools to systematically build in resilience. Initial focus areas are cyberinfrastructure, cyber physical systems, and large-scale built structures. We will develop techniques that apply broadly across multiple domains to complement existing domain-specific techniques from the specialists.

Oct 21: Tales about software startups from one who has been there and is leading one now.

Debashis Saha, VP of Engineering at AppZen, and previously VP at eBay, Paypal, and Intuit, will discuss his insights with CRISP members.


What Are We All About?

CRISP Director, Prof. Saurabh Bagchi talking about the center's goals.


Grand Challenge on Resilience Workshop

This was held at Purdue University on March 19-21, 2019. It was organized around the three themes of Resilience in cyber, cyber-physical, and socio-technical systems. All the material, including slides and video, are available from the website.
