Aviation safety; risk analysis; engineering economy; supply chain risk assessment
James Luxhoj’s research interests in aviation safety and risk analysis have been funded by both the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). Leading a research team of professors, graduate and undergraduate students, his most recent NASA-sponsored contract involved the use of probabilistic risk analysis techniques, such as Bayesian Belief Networks (BBNs), to model the interactions of risk factors contributing to aircraft accidents and incidents. These techniques, used by NASA’s Aviation Safety and Security Program (AvSSP), facilitated risk assessments of a portfolio of new technologies and aeronautical products aimed at reducing the likelihood and severity of certain categories of accidents. Dr. Luxhøj is currently leading a project with the FAA to develop a new systems level hazard taxonomy and safety risk analysis method for unmanned aircraft systems (UAS). He is also currently extending his aviation safety risk modeling approaches to providing risk assessments in resilient supply chains.
A recipient of a 1987 NASA/ASEE Summer Faculty Fellowship and a 1989 SAE Ralph R. Teetor Award for Engineering Education Excellence, Dr. Luxhøj is a member of the IIE, Alpha Pi Mu and Tau Beta Pi. He is also a three-time recipient of the Rutgers Engineering Governing Council’s Excellence in Teaching Award and the 1991 Sigma Chi Outstanding Professor for Rutgers University.
