Assistant Professor

Assistant Professor in the Department of Engineering


Dr Nima Gerami-Seresht is an Assistant Professor of Sustainable and Resilient Infrastructure in the Department of Engineering. Dr Gerami-Seresht received his PhD in Construction Engineering and Management, Civil Engineering from The University of Alberta in Canada (2017).

Dr Gerami-Seresh has a multi-disciplinary research portfolio. His theoretical research focuses on dynamic multi-agent systems, granular computing, and building information modelling (BIM). His applied research directions are geared toward digital construction, simulating construction processes, and sustainable and resilient urban infrastructure. In these applications, his research revolves around implementing dynamic multi-agent systems, artificial intelligence techniques (i.e., fuzzy computation, machine learning, and computer vision), and BIM to capture human behaviours in the built environment; and, consequently, to improve the sustainability and resilience of urban infrastructure.
In his current research, Dr Gerami-Seresht investigates potential solutions to improve the energy efficiency of smart buildings; and to enhance the disease-resilience of healthcare facilities.
