Andrea Saltelli has worked in physical chemistry, environmental sciences, applied statistics, impact assessment, and science for policy. One of his academic foci is on sensitivity analysis of model output, a discipline in which statistical tools are used to interpret the output of mathematical or computational models, and sensitivity auditing, an extension of sensitivity analysis to the entire evidence-generating process in a policy context.
His latest work is a contribution to the volume Science on the Verge on the emerging crisis of science’s quality assurance system. He is presently based at the Autonomous University of Barcelona (UAB). His web site contains recent articles and presentations.
