My name is Hesam, and I am a first-year PhD student at Stanford University , Deptartment of Civil and Environmental Engineering, the Sustainable Design and Construction Program.
I conduct my research studies under the supervision of Professor Martin Fischer at the Center for Integrated Facility Engineering(CIFE).
My works have been mainly focused on:
1)Automation and Robotics in Construction and Facility Maintenance: the use of artificail intelligence (e.g., machine learning and computer vision), robotics, and building information modeling (BIM) for automated construction and facility management.
2)Data-Driven Solutions for Smart Infrastructure: employing data analytics, pattern recognition, and predictive modeling towards the design of smart infrastructure systems.
Prior to joining Stanford in Fall 2016, I finished my research-based MASc at University of Toronto, Canada (2014-2016), and under the supervision of Professor Brenda McCabe. My MASc was focused on drone-based construction monitoring. I designed and implemented a computer vision/machine learning- and nD BIM-based solution ,entitled "InPRO", which utilized unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) for automated construction progress monitoring.
