Formerly United Nations expert, I’m Professor of Civil Engineering at the University of Mississippi in the United States, consultant, researcher, author of global infrastructure asset management books, and contributor to a forthcoming climate change mitigation handbook. I have lectured and worked worldwide in 27 countries.
I blog about research and trends with respect to global infrastructure asset management, land transportation and aviation assets, environmental sustainability, ecology and biodiversity preservation, global climate change mitigation, disaster risk assessment, and related applications of remote sensing and geospatial technologies.
