Research interests include information modelling, the application of artificial intelligence techniques to construction processes, construction automation, and advanced information and communication systems. Several research projects have been carried out with National construction organisations involving the analysis of construction processes, construction productivity, and the development of management information systems.
Research work has been directed at increasing the efficiency of industry through effective utilisation of information technology. In particular, his work has focused on the development of integrated information systems, knowledge-based systems, multimedia systems and digital construction.
Cross-faculty research has also been carried out between the Faculties of Social Sciences and Humanties and Science, Technology and Arts, involving simulation work related to construction processes, the development of web-based multimedia systems and the analysis and design of computer applications for construction. Additional work continues with the development of automated systems involving grammatical inference and elastic matching techniques applied to ground engineering.
