Dr. Szymanski (RPI) leads study on Model Global Risk Across Multiple Systems that is published in Scientific Reports and in the online access journal, Nature, June 18, 2015

Using data from the World Economic Forum annual assessment of global
risks, researchers at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI) have
developed a computational quantitative model of global risk network
dynamics.  The research was published in Scientific Reports on June 18,
2015, an online, open access journal from the publishers of Nature
