Alireza Shojaei kol kachi joined the Building Construction Science department at Mississippi State University in 2018 as an Assistant Professor. He received his Bachelor of Science in civil engineering from Amir Kabir University and his Master's degree in construction management with distinction from the University of Reading in the UK. He then went on to receive his Ph.D. from the University of Florida in design, construction and planning with a concentration in construction management. While there, he also received his Master of Science in management.
Dr. Shojaei’s research program focuses on the application of empirical modeling using computer-based modeling and simulation. The majority of his current work focuses on digital innovation and the application of emerging technologies in the built environment and project management and economics in the construction industry. The use of information modeling, data sensing and analytics, machine learning, and smart design and construction is evident in his track record of publications and grant proposals. He is invested in the challenge of revolutionizing the architecture, engineering, and construction industry toward a more resilient built environment, specifically through digital innovations.
