About Sean Reed
Sean specialises in research in the areas of reliability engineering and discrete event simulation modelling, developing models and techniques to analyse the performance of complex systems and processes.
His current research focus is the development and applications of digital twin models that use data from sensors, and other sources, to replicate the state of real world systems in computer code and predict their future performance, including reliability and availability. He is also interested in the development and application of statistical and logical methods, such as binary decision diagrams and survival signatures, to analyse the reliabilitity of systems such as aircraft and networks.
He currently teaches the RAMS modelling of system and processes course and the use of discrete event simulation in the Sustainable Production course.
He obtained masters and PhD degrees in aeronautical engineering from Loughborough University in the UK. Before joining Örebro University in 2020, he worked for ten years as a research fellow within the Resilience Engineering Research Group at the University of Nottingham in the UK, focusing on developing models for functional products and product service systems.
