Dr Samad Sepasgozar

PhD (UNSW)

Arts,Design & Architecture
School of Built Environment

Samad’s excellent research capability has been demonstrated by conducting an empirical study to investigate the extremely complex issues related to the practices of technology adoption and develop a uniform framework for understanding its process.  His other areas of interest are related to creating needs and applications for new technologies (Digital Twin, Blockchain, Geo-ICT, Scanners, BIM and GIS, Drones) in order to solve problems in city, infrastructure, construction, and mining.   

Samad developed several research initiatives with senior researchers, PhD and masters by research students in construction, MBA, and urban development.  Recently, he has collaborated with master and undergraduate honour thesis students to pursue research dissertations on innovation, BIM adoption and implementation of lidar systems in construction.  His other activities/achievements are:

  • Lecturer in construction, civil engineering, and architecture for over 10 years;
  • Founder of a refereed journal concerning urban planning, architecture, and civil engineering;
  • Associate Editor, Guest editor of special issues, editorial board member, and reviewer of 45 peer-reviewed journals including Nature Scientific Reports and many prestigious conferences in Australia, USA, Greece, etc;
  • Author of eight books, prior to his Ph.D. commencement;
  • Technical manager of several projects such as telecommunication tower, bridge, factories and residential buildings in one of Iran’s 10 best managed and leading companies for ten years. 
  • Awarded as the best researcher in his field of study in his previous university.
