Quantifying and Understanding
In this episode of Stanford MS&E: Stories & Voices (Spotify), we chat with Brian Reed, a graduate of the PhD program in MS&E. Brian discusses the value of multi-disciplinary work and how he has combined economics, computer science, and the natural sciences with MS&E to quantify the threats of extreme temperatures and flooding on the economic risks and prospects for companies in various industries, and how an understanding of these can inform mitigation efforts as well as create a competitive advantage.
