I am an experienced Environmental Engineering Architecture professional with a diverse background with 20 years¿ experience in Architecture, Environment, Sustainability, Research, Construction and Management. My experience spans a wide and diverse range of Academia, Research, Construction industry through teaching, design, construction, management and implementation in overseas and Australia. I have a strong academia background with record of lecturing in both undergraduate and graduate levels, Building Materials, Construction Technology, Industrialized Building, Technical design in overseas, Project Management, Risk Assessment. I had come to Australia to study PhD in Environmental Architecture at the Queensland University (UQ) with the topic of ¿Low Impact Construction Processes¿. With the recent Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) study in Environmental Engineering Architecture at the University of Southern Queensland (USQ), and through working in the construction industry, research centers for 15 years in Australia I have specialized in Environmental impact study, assessment and design; sustainable design, and construction carbon emission reduction, undertaking sustainability assessments and advising on sustainable design, energy consumption and emissions reduction in construction, building and infrastructure. I am a member of Royal Architectural Institute of Australia (RAIA); accredited professional member of Green Building Council of Australia (GBCA), and Green Globe, tourism building of Queensland, as a Senior Researcher worked with Infrastructure Sustainability Council of Australia (ISCA). Current and previous positions in Australia: Lecturer at School of Engineering and Surveying in Southern Queensland University. Senior Researcher in Cooperative Research Centre for Infrastructure and Engineering Asset. Management (CIEAM) in QUT university. Co-author of a book provided at the School of Architecture in Sydney university and established in London. Ecological Sustainable Designer (ESD) Manager working with Argo Architects and ETS. Environmental Coordinator in Conrad Gargett Architecture with SKM Consultant. Researcher at the Sustainable Design Center in Department of Architecture, School of Geography and Architecture, University of Queensland. Current and previous positions in overseas: Formal academia and faculty member at the School of Architecture and City Planning in the National university, Iran Senior Lecturer in universities, Beheshti or National University, Iran Teaching, research area and projects in Australia: Technology, Construction and Society, Lecturing and Tutoring (USQ) Construction Technology in Queensland University, Tutoring (UQ) Engineering Program Management, Tutoring (USQ) Management of Technological Risk, Lecturing and Tutoring (USQ) Reducing Construction Carbon Emission Through the use of Bioclimatic Design Principles Replacement of Polyurethane, Polystyrene with recycled disposable nappies to reduce CO2 emissions in Australian construction systems Use AUTOCAD, ARCHICAD, REVIT, BIM to mitigate and assess construction carbon emissions through the Bioclimatic Design Principles (Proposal) Low Impact Construction Processes (LICP) in Eco-Sensitive Construction Sites Harvey Bay Water Education Park, develop a tool, criteria to achieve a six-star water theme park, Harvey Bay, QLD Australia Desalination Plant in Gold Coast, as an Environmental Coordinator with Conrad Gargett to achieve Six Star office building, Architecture, Qld, Australia "Lark Quarry Dinosaur Trackways" project, and "Couran Cove" Island project, research on the construction process of this project as a case study for PhD study, in Winton, Longreach and Stradbroke Island, Qld, Australia
