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.

April: CRISP faculty awards announced

A panel of judges from industry, government, and Purdue thought leaders evaluated nominations for technical achievement and vision. The winners are Tiark Rompf in the "Outstanding Star" category and David Inouye in the "Rising Star" category.
