Biography

Peter A. Beling is Site Director for the University of Virginia (UVA) CVDI site. He is an associate professor in the Department of Systems and Information Engineering. Dr. Beling received his Ph.D. in Operations Research from the University of California at Berkeley and has held positions at the Center for Naval Analyses and the IBM Almaden Research Center. Dr. Beling’s research interests are in data analytics and decision-making in complex systems, with emphasis on adaptive decision support systems and reinforcement learning. His research has found application in a variety of domains, including smart manufacturing, resilient cyber physical systems, finance, and consumer credit.  He also directs the Adaptive Decision Systems Laboratory, which focuses on data analytics and decision support in cyber-physical systems. He is the co-founder of the Financial Decision Engineering research group at UVA, which is a focal point for research on systems engineering approaches to decisions and analyses in the financial and consumer credit domains. Dr. Beling has served as editor and reviewer for many academic journals. He has served as a member of two National Research Council panels.
