As an architect he has successfully completed several housing and commercial projects providing him with a good experience in building design and construction. Towards the end of 1998, he made a transition into the academic field when he joined the Department of Architecture at IIUM two years after its establishment in 1996. He pursued his Master's degree in Construction and Project Management in 1999 and after completing his Ph.D in 2012, he has developed a niche interest in the area of Commercial Building Planning and Design and Public Architecture with particular concerns on the design and development of Public Spaces, Building and Facilities to facilitate public needs for leisure.
