Dr. Ricci has led and conducted analyses and experimental work, for approximately 30 years, in the USA, Canada, Italy, Australia, France, Vietnam, China, and the European Union. For example, he has worked on: probabilistic decision models applied to environmental and energy choices, technological diffusion and innovation, probabilistic causation, linear and non-linear applied statistical models, deterministic and probabilistic systems analysis, as well as at the intersection between science and law via causal analysis. He also has studied the human health risks from nuclear and non-nuclear energy technologies, from the cradle to the grave, cancer and other toxic effects from exposure to airborne and waterborne contaminants and microbiological agents. He has written more than 200 papers, published 5 books, and has testified in the US Congress on waste management Bills.
