Now a consultant at a US engineering and infrastructures services company, Doro-on draws on her 2009 PhD dissertation at the University of Texas-San Antonio, and on earlier research papers, to explain how to use quantitative risk assessment to analyze the terror threat against US water infrastructure. Her topics include explosives used against water infrastructure, regulatory policies for protecting water infrastructure, standard risk and vulnerability assessment, cumulative prospect theory and risk acceptability, and strategic intelligence analysis for water infrastructure terrorism prevention.
