Graduated with Phd in Construction Management from Queensland University of Technology (QUT), his thesis focusses on Value Management (VM) in the design planning of an airport construction project. An expansion of his thesis has brings him to currently explore the relationship between VM, contruction procurement and building information modelling (BIM) that influenced construction performance. His current expansion of his portfolio focusses on VM and green rating tools for sustainable construction.
An alumnus of IIUM himself, he has been teaching Value Engineering, Contract administration and building measurement eversince he joined IIUM. A nominee for IIUM Best Teacher Award for 2016. He possess several years of experience working as Quantity Surveyor locally and internationally on civil engineering, hospital and high-rise construction projects where he specialised on Value Engineering study and cost control. During his candidature period as PhD scholar, he lecture both undergraduate and post-graduate student at QUT on Quantity Surveying and Project Management (Critical Path Method) course. These experiences has significantly influenced the way he approached teaching Quantity Surveying to IIUM students.
In term of administrative post, he was the former Head of Department for Quantity Surveying in 2008 and actively serving various journal review committee, external examiner for undergraduate programme, working committee in various Kulliyyah's initiative as well as QS professional bodies.
