Congratulations to Dario Valcamonico!!!

He won the PhD award sponsored by PayPal Ireland at the ESREL2022 conference, Dublin, 28th August – 1st September 2022.

The work “A Taxonomy for Modelling Reports of Process Safety Events in the Oil and Gas Industry” has received the award in the category “Innovation in Energy Sector Applications”. It proposes an innovative methodology for quantitative risk assessment, which combines Natural Language Processing with Bayesian Networks for the systematic analysis of textual reports in hydrocarbon production assets.

The developed work is part of the multidisciplinary PhD program between the Energy Department and Department of Electronics, Information and Bioengineering of Politecnico di Milano and it has been developed within the ongoing PhD research of Dario Valcamonico under the supervision of Prof. Piero Baraldi and Prof. Enrico Zio in collaboration with our industrial partners Anna Crivellari, Luca Decarli and Laura La Rosa from Eni Natural Resources.
