Dr Matteo SPADA
Matteo Spada is a risk analyst in the Technology Assessment (TA) group of the Laboratory for Energy Systems Analysis (LEA) at the Paul Scherrer Institut (PSI). He holds a Master in Physics from the University of Bologna (Italy) and a PhD from the ETH Zurich in the field of geophysics.
His primarily research interests are the comparative analysis of severe accident risk in the energy sector, and its relevance in the broader context of sustainability, energy security, critical infrastructure protection, and decision support; the risk of rare but severe accidents related to production and consumption of energy; the uncertainty estimation in the context of accident risk assessment.
Other interests include spatio-temporal models for accident risk assessment; the support of decision-making processes with tools such as Multi-Criteria Decision Analysis (MCDA). He is also one of the responsible for the update and extensions of PSI’s database ENSAD (Energy-Related Severe Accident Database).
Matteo Spada regularly presents his work at international conferences and meetings and publishes in peer-reviewed journals.
