About Sean Reed
Sean is a researcher in reliability engineering. His research interests include the development of models of reliability and maintenance of complex systems and processes. He is particularly interested in the use of discrete event simulation, machine learning and optimisation techniques to create digital twins of systems that replicate a physical real world system in computer code to predict their future reliability and availability. He is also interested in the use of binary decision diagrams and survival signatures as tools for representing and analysing the reliabilitity structure of systems such as K-terminal networks and fault trees. He obtained masters and PhD degrees in aeronautical engineering from Loughborough University, where his research focused on the reliability analysis and optimisation of phased mission aircraft systems.
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.
