Biography

Dr Rasa Remenyte-Prescott is The Lloyd's Register Foundation Lecturer in Risk and Reliability Engineering at the University of Nottingham. Rasa gained BSc and MSc degrees with distinction in applied mathematics from Kaunas University of Technology in Lithuania. Following this Rasa undertook her Doctorate research at Loughborough University on systems reliability modelling of non-coherent systems using the Binary Decision Diagram technique. This work led Rasa to develope fast and accurate reliability assessment techniques for Unmanned Aerial Vehicles on an industry-led collaborative project in a postdoctoral research fellow role. Rasa presented the work at the 26th International System Safety Conference, where it was awarded Best Paper Prize. The work was conducted collaborating with BAE Systems and it lead to a submission which reached the final at the IET Innovation Awards 2009.

Rasa became a lecturer in 2010 at the University of Nottingham where she co-developed a new MSc Programme in Risk and Reliability methods by Distance Learning aimed at industry professionals bit.ly/riskandreliability
