Kun works on research related to pile integrity evaluation based on ontology and machine learning.

PhD Researcher

Quality assurance

Alan has been involved with various roles from contractor side - Working on the Ice Arena Wales Project thought to Structural Design in a consultancy working from small to large designs involving multi-disciplinary teams.

He is currently working with various partners to deliver BIM Certification to various companies and government organisations. His passion for BIM includes the development of a quality assurance Framework for BIM and related practical tools. 

PhD Researcher

Machine learning

Tengxiang Su is graduated from UCL as an architecture student. He joined BIMSE in Cardiff University.

He is good at parametric modelling in BIM practical domain.

His is researching on machine learning-based asset management.

PhD Researcher

Energy optimisation

Lini is a co-trained doctoral student from China, majoring in computational mechanics. Her research topic is BIM-based integrated optimisation design of structure-energy model in life-cycle. And her main goal is to solve interoperability problems between heterogeneous data in BIM model.

She hopes to find an accessible way to make heterogeneous data, including but not limited to: energy, structure, architecture, supply chain and so on, interact and communicate under the same BIM model. Finally, it could be applied to a real building to complete the energy-structure comprehensive optimisation design.

PhD Researcher
