John R. Hummel

Program Lead, Integrated Resiliency Analysis


Dr. John R. Hummel is the lead for Integrated Resiliency Analyses in the Decision and Infrastructure Sciences Division at Argonne National Laboratory. He is also the developer of the Analysis of Resiliency for Integrated System Effectiveness (ARISE) framework for assessing societal and regional resiliency. ARISE analyses have been conducted at the country level for Nepal and Bangladesh and can be applied on smaller, community levels. Dr. Hummel has also studied the role of the human landscape in community resilience studies, the impacts of climate change on national security, including the role it can play as a driver for migration and food security. He has over 30 years of experience in developing and using modeling and simulation applications in a variety of domains, such as environmental representations, logistics, simulation architectures, and the impacts of climate change on National Security. He has a Ph.D. in Atmospheric Science from the University of Michigan and a M.S. in Meteorology and B.S. with Honors Option in Engineering Science from the Pennsylvania State University. Dr. Hummel is a Senior Fellow with the Computation Institute of the University of Chicago, the Northwestern-Argonne Institute for Science and Engineering, and a Fellow of the Military Operations Research Society.
