Dr. Christos Ellinas (EngD, MEng) is an EPSRC Doctoral Prize Research Fellow at the University of Bristol (UK), and a Visiting Professor at the Stevens Institute of Technology (USA). Initially trained as a Civil Engineer (University of Bath, UK), Christos recently completed an Engineering Doctorate (EngD) in Systems Engineering (University of Bristol, UK / University of Bath, UK) working on the application of network science to risk related challenges. His work draws from the theoretical study of complex systems to tackle real-world challenges in a variety of domains, including (financial) systemic risk, (project) complexity evaluation and team performance. His research has been featured in top-tier academic conferences, journals and industry-focused guides, including the Institute of Risk Management’s ‘Extended Enterprise: Managing risk in complex 21st century organisations’. Christos was the finalist for the ‘Research Writer of the Year 2013’ and the ‘Fraser-Nash Best Paper Award 2014’. He was recently awarded the Actuarial Foundation’s ‘2015 ERM Research Excellence Award’ for his contribution in the body of ERM knowledge.
This paper presents an evaluation of how risk interdependence affects the risk management process.
