Professional Teaching Fellow

Biography

I am currently a Professional Teaching Fellow at the Graduate School of Engineering, mainly involved in management-related courses. I finished my PhD in Construction Management in July 2020 at the University of Auckland. Prior to PhD, and while doing a master's degree part-time, I worked for 7 years as a structural designer and a construction engineer in several major projects such as the Hilton King's Ranch Hotel in Egypt and the Holy Mosque of Mecca in Saudi Arabia. I am an active member of the Project Management Institute (PMI) and a certified Project Management Professional (PMP) by PMI.
