Changwon Son is a Ph.D. student and graduate research assistant in Industrial and Systems Engineering Department at Texas A&M University. His primary research interest is investigating Resilience Engineering (RE) in complex socio-technical systems including emergency management, oil and gas industries, and healthcare sectors. RE provides a new paradigm for safety and human factors in solving challenging problems by looking at dynamic interplay among cognitive systems components such as human operators, technical tools. Changwon received my master’s degree in Safety Engineering from Mary Kay O’Connor Process Safety Center, the pioneer of process safety. Before joining a graduate school, Changwon worked for Hyundai Heavy Industries, the world’s largest shipyard as an HSE (health, safety, environment) manager for multiple shipbuilding and offshore projects. His hobby is playing sports, playing guitar, and fixing things. Changwon can perform Talchum, a traditional Korean Mask Dance and he showed it to elementary school children in local areas.
