Assistant Professor, Construction Science
I’m currently working as an assistant professor in Construction Science at the School of Architecture at Prairie View A&M University and previously as a lecturer in the College of Engineering at Texas A&M University. I’m graduated from Texas A&M University in Civil Engineering, Construction Engineering, and Management program. For several years, I worked as a “Planning and Project Control” expert before relocating to College Station, Texas, to pursue graduate study in construction engineering and management. I completed a master of science in construction and project management from the University of Tehran in 2006. I focused on construction scheduling using Building Information Model as my dissertation topic. With my years of programming experience, I’m always eager to learn and implement new things, combining the gained knowledge to solve problems faster and better.Show moreShow less
