Career Path:
My interest in construction management was kindled in me from an earlier age, being brought up in a family which runs a construction company in Taiwan. I have been fully engaged in the built environment field since 1992, either as a practitioner, student or lecturer. The professional practice experience I had gained has been in site engineering and quality management consultancy and training. My graduate and postgraduate qualifications are in a broad range of built environment disciplines, including architectural engineering, construction engineering and construction management.
