Christoph A. Thieme
PhD Student

AMOS at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology

Christoph Alexander Thieme is a Ph.D. candidate in Marine Technology at the Centre of Excellence for Autonomous Marine Operations and Systems (AMOS) at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) in Trondheim, Norway. As a visiting scholar Under the supervision of Prof. Mosleh, he worked on the reliability assessment of software for autonomous marine systems and integrating software reliability in probabilistic risk assessment. Autonomous systems rely on software-intensive control and therefore special attention needs to be paid to software reliability assessment.

Weiwen Peng

Weiwen Peng
PhD Student

University of Electronic Science and Technology of China

Weiwen Peng is a Ph.D. student in Mechanical Engineering at University of Electronic Science and Technology of China. He was a visiting graduate researcher of B. John Garrick Institute for the Risk Sciences during 2014-2015, and now continues his research on X-ware reliability in China. Under Professor Mosleh’s supervision, his research is focused on X-ware system reliability by leveraging the strengths of Bayesian reliability and model based systems engineering. As an imperative topic, the research on X-ware system reliability is distinguished from classic methodology of system reliability by highlighting the interactions within the X-ware system, and being more dynamic and more realistic.
