Areas of research

Dr. Sánchez-Silva main area of research is structural reliability and risk analysis. His work is directed mainly towards risk assessment and management of physical infrastructure related problems. His work includes stochastic modeling and optimization. His research also includes problems where the socioeconomic context and the environment play a significant role, and consequently, traditional risk analysis models can only be used partially.
