Research and expertise

In our cities, the production and consumption of resources are achieved at an unsustainable rate. Combined with an increasing global population and accelerating urbanization, the absence of a new approach will almost certainly have dramatic environmental consequences.

Potential solutions are emerging: the concepts of circular economy (CE) and urban metabolism (UM), which contrast the current and traditional linear extract-produce-use-dispose model of the modern economic and urban systems, offer a new approach. The study focus on research of resources consumed by transportation systems in the cities and analyse scenario using the Urban Metabolism approach. 

Research Aim: To develop Urban Metabolism Framework for Transportation Systems in Cities in developing and developed economies.

Teaching

I contribute to learning and teaching activities for architecture and planning studios across the Schools programmes including:

Undergraduate

  • Planning Studio
  • Skill Development
  • Basics in Architecture

Postgraduate

  • Planning Studio
  • GIS and its application
  • Urban Transport Planning

Enterprise

Short courses 

  • Research exchange, Commonwealth Split-site Scholarship, UK Foreign Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO) (One year)

Profile

I plan to use my research findings to develop more appropriate suggestions and policy frameworks based on urban transport metabolism classified by the economy.

I intend to educate prospective students in their different careers, I will attempt to discover comprehensive descriptions, predictions, and explanations with remarkable depth for the academic subjects to enable them to excel in their careers and to help the citizens in their country and environment.
