Research interests

Research interests and expertise revolve around digital innovations (e.g., 4D Building Information Modelling etc), their diffusion, and potential for improving construction project delivery and performance, and CPM practice. Additionally, themes of built environment sustainability and organisational learning from project experiences (e.g., the impact of digital technologies on-site processes) are also evident throughout work and higher-degree project supervisions.
