Educational and Research Projects:
A research associate position at the Bartlett School Env., Energy & Resources BSEER, University College London UCL, where I worked within a research teamwork on developing guidelines for mixed-Use development projects in Guangzhou, South China. This role was to provide strategic planning studies for one of the large developers in Southern China to develop projects for sustainable growth of the community of Guangzhou and its surrounding.

Building information modelling BIM is a promising research application in design processes and construction project management that is authorised by the British Government to be a system delivery for every project in UK. In this particular subject, I held a research initiative in the Bartlett School of Architecture, University College London to answer the question: How to make use of big data provided in design process of large scale projects in order to improve design enterprise, management and quality control? A research proposal was developed collaboratively with software firms –i.e. Bentley & Autodesk– to develop considerations for design models.
