Kenneth (Tak Wing) is a Professor in Construction Management and Property in the School of Built Environment at UNSW Sydney. His research career to date spans almost 18 years and he has a strong passion for conducting behavioral research in the field of construction management. As of today, he has already produced more than 100 research outputs, including international refereed journal articles, research monographs, book chapters, and conference papers. His research networks cover different countries/regions such as New Zealand, Hong Kong, Mainland China, the Netherlands, Singapore, the United States of America, Japan, Malaysia, and the United Kingdom. He is also an active competitive research grant assessor for Hong Kong and New Zealand Governments. He is now being the associate editor of two international journals (ASCE Journal of Legal Affairs and Dispute Resolution in Engineering and Construction and the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE)’s international journal Management, Procurement and Law). Recently he was elected to be the Editorial Board Member of an international journal  - Safety Science.

Before joining UNSW in January 2023, Kenneth was an instructor and lecturer at the Department of Building and Construction, City University of Hong Kong (CityU HK) (2005-2010), he then relocated to New Zealand to start the position of Senior Lecturer at the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, University of Auckland (UoA) (2010-2019). At UoA, he was the Deputy Head of Department (Academic) (2015-2017) and Lecturer's Representative in the Senate (2016-2018). In 2019, he was appointed Associate Professor in Quantity Surveying in the School of Built Environment at Massey University (MU) (2019-2023). He was the Research Lead to provide leadership of all research-related matters in this School.
