Research Area

My PhD focuses on investigating the indirect environmental impacts of construction industry in Australia. A sophisticated hybrid environmental assessment model will be created with the help of the multi-regional input-output (MRIO) data developed through the NeCTAR funded Industrial Ecology Virtual Laboratory. This hybrid model will ultimately be applied to several case study construction projects.

I am undertaking my research with supervision from Prof. Richard Stuetz and Associate Prof. Tommy Wiedmann, and is co-supervised by Dr. Robert Crawford from the University of Melbourne.
