Biography summary

Dr. Farnad Nasirzadeh is a Senior Lecturer in Construction Management at Deakin University. Prior to joining Deakin, he was a Lecturer/Visiting Fellow at UNSW and an Associate Professor at PNU. Farnad has more than 17 years’ experience in construction industry as a Senior Quantity Surveyor and Project Management Consultant.

Farnad’s main research interest is modelling and simulation of construction projects. He has used different simulation tools including BIM, System Dynamics (SD), Discrete Event Simulation (DES), and Agent Based Modelling (ABM) in his previous research to model construction projects in a virtual environment. Farnad’s research has recently focused on Hybrid Simulation (defined as models that combine at least two of these four simulation approaches) to simulate the performance of complex construction projects more accurately. Farnad has published several papers in highly ranked journals in the area of simulation and has attracted several internal and external research grants.
