PhD defence by Sebastian Tølbøll Glavind
Sebastian will defend his PhD thesis "INFORMATION-CONSISTENT SYSTEMSMODELING AND ANALYSIS: WITH APPLICATIONS IN OFFSHORE ENGINEERING". All are welcome.
25.06.2021 kl. 12.00 - 16.00
The present thesis introduces and further develops recent research on probabilistic modeling and analysis of complex systems in pursuit of knowledge- and information-consistent models. It is emphasized that although this research is demonstrated in the context of offshore engineering, it is fully generic and applies in principle to any field of application where complex systems occur. Appreciating that model building is inherently a subjective task that relies on the modeler's bias towards and knowledge of existing modeling frameworks, as well as the available or chosen data for modeling, we often end up with a set of relevant model hypotheses that explain the data almost equally well. At the same time, our modeling efforts should always be seen in relation to the decisions they serve to support, i.e., it is imperative that system representations support the decision context at hand in the best way possible when performing decision optimization. This research accommodates these considerations by introducing practical statistical and decision analytical frameworks for dealing with competing system representations in inferential modeling and decision-making.
