Dr. Kathryn Laskey
Kathryn Laskey of the Department of Systems Engineering and Operations Research at George Mason University, conducts research and teaches undergraduate and graduate courses in Systems Modeling, Bayesian Networks, Decision Analysis, and Computational Models for Probabilistic Inference. Her students use Netica for much of their labwork.
The purpose of the Australasian Bayesian Network Modelling Society (ABNMS) is to promote the understanding and use of Bayesian network (BN) models in scientific, industrial and research applications. Provides opportunities for BN modellers to exchange ideas and socialize through conferences, events and mailing lists for discussion.

Dr. Bruce Marcot
Bruce Marcot is a wildlife ecologist and researcher who has been applying Netica to ecological modelling for several years. (See the Literature tab for links to some of his recent works). The following links are of particular interest:

Dr. Kevin Korb

Dr. Ann Nicholson
Ann Nicholson and Kevin Korb are faculty at the School of Computer Science and Software Engineering at Monash University, Australia. They conduct research in Artificial Intelligence and Probabilistic Reasoning, and they teach senior undergraduate and graduate courses on Bayes Nets. They are leading researchers in the field of Bayes nets, and are experienced with Netica. Of particular interest:

Development of risk assessment
tools for reintroducing fire
and BAER implementation,
by US Forest Service
Application to develop decision support tools to address the following critical management questions:
  1. What is the sediment risk after a wildfire, given the information typically available to a BAER team (e.g. burn severity maps,topography, geology)?
  2. What is the sediment risk associated with a proposed forest health treatment (e.g. prescribed fire, thinning) versus the sedimentrisk associated with taking no action?
