Biography

Angela Dalton is a Systems Engineer in EED's Risk & Decision Sciences Group. Dr. Dalton joined PNNL in 2009 to help build capability in social and behavioral modeling and decision analysis. Her research contribution ranges from expert elicitation and expert assessment methods and application, expert-informed decision and risk analyses, inter-organizational collaboration and communication analysis, to inter-group and organizational behavior. Her research projects focus on providing technical and policy analysis on issues pertaining to drug and alcohol testing, fatigue, and performance assessment, modeling social and behavioral complexity in domains such as nonproliferation, technology assessment and usability evaluation, business enterprise architecture compliance evaluation, and inter-organizational communication and collaboration. Her work primary supports the missions of the DoD, DOE, and NRC. She has published on expert elicitation techniques, social computational modeling, technology maturity assessment, multi-criteria decision analysis, and gender and group dynamics in ethno-political conflicts and terrorism. She holds a doctorate in Public Administration from the Nelson Rockefeller College of Public Affairs and Policy, State University of New York at Albany (SUNY-Albany).
