Joanne Bechta Dugan is Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering and the Director of the Computer Engineering Program at the University of Virginia. Her research focuses on probabilistic assessment of the dependability of computer-based systems. She has developed the Dynamic Fault Tree model, which extends the applicability of fault tree analysis to computer systems. Her research interests include hardware and software reliability engineering, dependable computing, system health management and mathematical modeling using dynamic fault trees, Markov models, and Bayesian networks. Her current focuses on the development of new technologies and engineering approaches to evaluate and improve engineering education, both in traditional classroom setting and in non-traditional on-line settings.
Dr. Dugan holds a B.A. degree in Mathematics and Computer Science from La Salle University, and M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Electrical Engineering from Duke University.
