José R. Martí has a Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from the University of British Columbia (UBC), Vancouver, Canada. He is a professor at this institution, where he has made contributions to real-time solutions of large power networks and the modelling of interdependent critical infrastructures for resiliency and real-time response. Contributions include models for travelling wave propagation of electromagnetic waves, hydraulic waves, seismic waves, and wildfire spread. He is the lead investigator of the Complex Systems Integration (CSI) Laboratory at the Institute for Computing, Information and Cognitive Systems (ICICS) at UBC. Current projects include considering the effect of climate change in risk evaluation, real-time earthquake early warning preparation and response, and real-time wildfire spread and suppression.
