Research Interests

In general, my research aims at increasing the sustainability and intelligence of the design, construction, and maintenance of infrastructure and buildings. It consists of three major components:

  1. Application of AI technologies for design automation.
  2. Application of computer vision and robotics to improve the safety and productivity of construction operations.
  3. Infrastructure and building condition assessment using the internet of things with public participation (Crowdsensing-based infrastructure and building health monitoring).
