The Society for Risk Analysis (SRA) is a multidisciplinary, interdisciplinary, scholarly, international society that provides an open forum for all those who are interested in risk analysis. Risk analysis is broadly defined to include risk assessment, risk characterization, risk communication, risk management, and policy relating to risk, in the context of risks of concern to individuals, to public- and private-sector organizations, and to society at a local, regional, national, or global level.

At the SRA's annual meeting, each specialty group organizes a student merit competition to promote excellence in risk analysis research. The competitors submit an abstract of their research as well as presenting it at the meeting. At the end of the meeting, the best abstract and presentation is chosen by the board members of the prospective specialty group as the winner of the Risk Management Specialty Group Student Merit Award.

The SRA's annual meeting was held in New Orleans, LA in November 2018, where University of Maryland-College Park Reliability Engineering Research Assistant Ramin Moradi was a member of the winning group to receive the Risk Management Specialty Group Student Merit Award.
