Vincent Paglioni

Vincent is a fourth-year Ph.D. Candidate in Reliability Engineering at the University of Maryland, College Park. His research focuses on human reliability analysis for nuclear power plant operations, specifically investigating how to conceptualize and model dependent human actions. Vincent holds a B.S. in Nuclear and Radiological Engineering from the Georgia Institute of Technology, and a M.S. in Reliability Engineering from the University of Maryland. Prior to graduate school, Vincent worked for the Department of Defense writing maintenance and testing procedures for naval nuclear submarines. As an undergraduate, he interned with Southern Nuclear Operating Company and Sila Nanotechnologies. Vincent is an active member of the American Nuclear Society and the American Society of Mechanical Engineers. His other research interests include nuclear reliability and safety, Bayesian methods, and the intersection of ethics and engineering. After graduating with his Ph.D., Vincent hopes to become a faculty member and continue researching in nuclear safety and human reliability analysis. Outside of research, Vincent enjoys running, reading about nuclear science and history, and being outdoors.
