Ph.D. in Construction Engineering and Management, University of Nebraska-Lincoln

More than seven years of international construction experience in various capacities including dam, road, manufacturing and building construction projects. Served both in preconstruction and managerial positions in the field for more than a million square feet of building construction.
Teaches CSM courses in construction cost estimating I and II.
The average U.S. health-care facility uses three to five times more energy than a comparable size office building. More than two-thirds of total energy consumption is dedicated to maintaining environmental control and indoor air quality (IAQ). Yet, the issue of hospital air quality has remained utterly controversial. The main goal of my research is to appraise the effect of environmental parameters on design, construction, operation, and maintenance (DCOM) of healthcare premises. In particular, questions are addressed as to how patient safety and the quality of care can be improved through the DCOM phases. The research results will be further implemented in the development of regulatory codes and standards.
Serves as the faculty advisor for the student chapter of the Associated Builders and Contractors and faculty coach for their competition team. Member of the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating, and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE), servers on the technical committee T.C. 9-6 Ventilation for Healthcare Facilities. Member of the American Society of Healthcare Engineers (ASHE) and serves as a reviewer for many national journals and conferences.
