I am a research-driven Lecturer of Construction Project Management at the Scott Sutherland School of Architecture and Built Environment. I recently completed the thesis "Rethinking Construction cost overruns: an artificial neural network approach to construction cost estimation" with the aim of revisiting the pervasive problem of budget overruns in delivering infrastructure projects. I am keenly interested in practical research and teaching that is of direct benefit to the construction and oil and gas industries.
