Brief Biography

I am now an associate professor in the School of Management Science and Real Estate at the Chongqing University, China. Since 2012, I have been researching environmental impact analysis of construction projects for achieving sustainable construction. This has led to the publication of more than 20 refereed papers mostly in high impact academic and professional journals. I am currently an associate editor of the Journal of Construction Engineering (in Chinese) and a guest editor of the International Journal of Construction Management (Index in ESCI).
