Keynote Speakers
Dr. Woo has written widely on risk analysis, and is author of the book, The Mathematics of Natural Catastrophes, published by Imperial College Press. He was a top mathematics graduate of Cambridge University, completed his Ph.D. at MIT as a Kennedy Scholar, and was a member of the Harvard Society of Fellows.
Dr. Gordon Woo is a research scholar specializing in mathematical aspects of catastrophe risk modeling, primarily within the insurance industry. He has extensive experience on quantitative risk assessment at nuclear, chemical, petroleum, and military installations. In 2004, he was named by Treasury & Risk magazine as one of the 100 most influential people in finance.
Dr. Wilson’s pioneering efforts for Risk Analysis started to bloom in the early 1970s, when he became interested in comparing risks of nuclear power to problems caused by other forms of electric power generation.  Starting in 1972 Richard Wilson became a leader in the developing field Risk Analysis.  This led to his active concern in many subjects, including  Radiation,  Chemical Carcinogens, Air Pollution, Potential Climate Change,  Arsenic and Nuclear Weapons.
Dr. Richard Wilson is a Mallinckrodt Professor of Physics, emeritus at Harvard University. Dr. Wilson has authored more than 900 papers, been a consultant to dozens of governmental agencies and academic institutes, and lectured around the world on energy, risk, and environmental policy. He was a founding member of the Society for Risk Analysis and in 1993 won the SRA’s distinguished Achievement Award.
