Dr. Inkabi has over 10 years of experience specializing in the risk assessment and management of infrastructure systems with a particular emphasis on human and organizational factors. He has completed a full range of risk and reliability studies including uncertainty and risk analyses of natural gas pipelines, vulnerability assessments of flood control and power transmission systems, and the evaluation of high reliability management practices (nuclear power industry).
Dr. Inkabi also worked on the development of engineering quality metrics, including safety, resilience, and sustainability. In addition, he participated in the National Science Foundation sponsored investigation of the New Orleans flood defense system following Hurricane Katrina in 2005.
Dr. Inkabi has experience consulting on pipeline safety and integrity management issues to gas transmission and distribution companies, including a large gas utility company with its implementation plan to validate the Maximum Allowable Operating Pressure (MAOP) and modernize records for its gas transmission lines. He has performed formal apparent cause evaluations (ACE) and root cause analyses (RCA) in response to gas safety and reliability events.
