Andrea Saltelli (https://orcid.org/0000-0003-4222-6975) has worked on physical chemistry, environmental sciences, applied statistics, impact assessment and science for policy. His main disciplinary focus is on sensitivity analysis of model output, a discipline where statistical tools are used to interpret the output from mathematical or computational models, and on sensitivity auditing, an extension of sensitivity analysis to the entire evidence-generating process in a policy context.
He has worked at the European Commission, leading between 2005 and 2015 a unit of econometrics and applied statistics. From November 2016 till June 2020 adjunct professor at the Centre for the Study of the Sciences and the Humanities (SVT) - University of Bergen (UIB). He is presently visiting researcher at UIB-SVT, associate researcher at Institute for Cognitive Sciences and Technologies of the Italian National Research Council (CNR) and academic counsellor at UPF Barcelona School of Management.
His most recent papers have tackled sensitivity analysis and auditing, science’s reproducibility crisis, impact assessment, ethics of quantification, regulatory capture, rankings of higher education, science's integrity and the post-truth discussion. In summer 2023 a book entitled The Politics of Modelling, Numbers Between Science and Policy, was published by Oxford University Press, where he contributed as editor and author.
