​I have multi-disciplinary research experience that involves the fields of construction, software engineering, and education. In addition, I have participated in interdisciplinary research that involves real estate, circular economy, property technology, built environment, immersive technologies, building information modelling (BIM), artificial intelligence, and emerging state-of-the-art technologies.

My primary research interests are in project data analytics, emerging technologies (i.e., AR/VR, AI, and IoT) in project management, project management education, and digital construction. 

I am currently conducting independent research on project management education and the use of emerging technologies in project management.
