Biography
Eva Regnier is Associate Professor of Decision Science. Her research interest is decisions under uncertainty, with broad applications, primarily in energy and the natural environment. Examples include estimating the logistics burdens of providing supplies in remote locations with missing infrastructure, estimating the informational value of energy demonstration projects, predicting the more likely locations of pirate activity, and analyzing the tradeoff between lead-time and forecast accuracy in hurricane evacuation decisions. She teaches topics including model-building, statistics, and behavioral decision analysis to managers in the U.S. Department of Defense and equivalent organizations in other countries. It's a lot of fun!
