Dr. Floris Goerlandt
Canada Research Chair in
Risk Management and Resource Optimization for Marine Industries
- M.Sc. Engineering, Marine Technology, Ghent University, Belgium. 2005. Cum Laude

- D.Sc. (Tech) Marine Technology, Marine Risk and Safety, Aalto University, Finland. 2015. Cum Laude
Dr. Floris Goerlandt obtained a degree of Master of Science in Engineering (Marine Technology) from Ghent University in Belgium, and a degree of Master of Science in Maritime Sciences from Antwerp University in Belgium. After a period in the shipping industry, with safety-focused technical and operational assignments in Belgium, Norway, Singapore, China, and Finland, he obtained the degree of Doctor of Science (Tech.) in Marine Technology, with a focus on Maritime Risk and Safety, from Aalto University in Finland.
Following an assignment as a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Catholic University of Leuven (Belgium), a part-time assignment at the Baltic Marine Environment Protection Commission (Finland), and a faculty position as University Lecturer at Aalto University (Finland), he took up the position of Assistant Professor in the Industrial Engineering Department at Dalhousie University. He currently also holds the Canada Research Chair (Tier 2) in Risk Management and Resource Optimization for Marine Industries. In this context, he is co-lead of the Maritime Risk and Safety (MARS) Group, working together with Dr. Ronald Pelot.
Dr. Goerlandt serves on the Editorial Board of the Safety Science journal. He also is an active member of the Society for Risk Analysis and the Working Group on Shipping Impacts in the Marine Environment of the International Council for the Exploration of the Seas. Finally, he contributes to the activities of the Working Group on Waterway Risk Management of the International Association for Aids to Navigation and Lighthouse Authorities.
Dr. Goerlandt’s research interests cover risk and safety engineering and management for marine industries, authorities, and associated stakeholders. Current applications focus on risks to coastal communities due to shipping disruptions caused by major natural hazards, maritime emergency preparedness and response risk management, organizational risk and safety management, safety and environmental sustainability of Arctic shipping, and safety and risks of maritime autonomous surface ships. Furthermore, he is interested in fundamental issues in risk and safety science, including the structure and development of key concepts, theories, and methods. In particular, he is interested in the validity and effectiveness of safety and risk analysis methods.
