Fausto Fleites, PhD Student


I recently completed my first year as a Ph.D. student in FIU’s Computer Science program.

At FIU, I have been given the opportunity to work with the Florida Public Hurricane Loss Model, a project funded by the state of Florida that projects hurricane losses incurred by insurance companies.

It is the only public model whose assumptions and calculations are transparent and open to public analysis. Other models are proprietary.

I began working on the project in 2006 and am now the leader of the graduate students working on the model. In 2010, I was recognized by the Greater Miami Chamber of Commerce as the Top Technology Student of the Year.
