Adam has an MSc in Computer Science from Bialystok University of Technology, Poland and a Ph.D. in Information Science from University of Pittsburgh. His past industry experience includes Intel Research and HRL Laboratories. He held academic positions at the Graduate School of Public International Affairs, University of Pittsburgh and the Robotics Institute, Carnegie Mellon University.
Dr Adam Zagorecki is a Senior Research Fellow in the Centre for Simulation and Analytics.
- Adam's research interests include probabilistic approaches such as Bayesian networks, influence diagrams, decision trees, and probabilistic risk analysis.
- He specialises in decision analysis, simulation including agent-based simulation, hybrid simulation and statistical aspects of simulation modelling.
- Application areas include fault diagnosis, prognostic modelling, modelling stability and counter-insurgency, crisis management, emergency preparedness, crisis management, and organisational efficiency.
Adam developed the FATool simulation software for projectile fragmentation and lethality modelling and recently finished the KTBox project funded by EPSRC, concerned with predictive maintenance modelling.
