Research Interests

Brian's research focuses on applying information technologies to improve various dimensions of construction project performance, including health and safety, progress monitoring, and human-robot collaboration. He is also interested in integrating cognition science, psychology, and organisation science into behaviour and culture analysis in the construction domain. Brian has secured more than NZ$300K research funds in different research roles.
My current main research projects include:
UAV-based road construction progress monitoring
VR-based situation awareness for construction safety
Microgrid systems in New Zealand: barriers and drivers, cost-benefit analysis
