Dr Tanya Le Sage is a Research Associate at University College London. She joined the Security and Crime Science Department in October 2011 to work on the European Union funded Resilient Infrastructure and Building Security Project, which supports the design of effective and viable integrated security measures aimed at protecting infrastructures without impact on their business dynamics.
Her research has been concerned with the development of a risk based model which aims to mitigate the probability of a terrorist attack occurring, guiding the requirements specification for future technologies which can be used to aid in the prevention of future terrorist attacks, or which reduce the impact of such an attack through enhancement of recovery and response. She is combining a systems engineering approach with agent-based modelling techniques to simulate potential attack scenarios.
Her work requires comprehensive threat characterisation and crime script modelling to be fed into a simulation model which is used invoke a thorough risk analysis for the individual scenarios.
In 2011 she completed her PhD which was concerned with the development of a system which was used to monitor patterns of human movement within a harsh environment. She developed a wireless sensor network which aimed to provide real-time information with regards to human movement. She developed hardware, software and communication architectures for the system and a wide range of signal processing algorithms, some of which were embedded within the sensors, thus allowing real-time implementation.
