IIASA Alumnus Ecosystems Services and Management
Brian Walsh joined the Ecosystems Services and Management (ESM) Program as a Research Scholar in January 2014. His technical expertise includes statistical analysis of large sets of data from structured and unstructured sources: Data cleaning and background analysis; model development and testing; and measurements of signal significance, statistical limits, and confidence intervals.
Dr. Walsh earned his B.S. in physics from the University of Notre Dame in South Bend, IN (USA), and his PhD in particle physics at Yale University in New Haven, CT (USA). He performed his doctoral research on the ATLAS experiment at the European Council for Nuclear Research (CERN) in Geneva, Switzerland, where he contributed to a world-best limit on rates of supersymmetric top quark pair production.
