Scholarly biography

Ruoyu's main research outputs can be summarized in BIM pedagogy-based research, construction waste management, workers’ construction safety issues, and recycled aggregate concrete made from construction wastes. In recent years Ruoyu has been working on developing interdisciplinary research and integrating these aforementioned research topics, for example, adopting BIM in C&D waste management and as the digital platform during the life cycle of off-site construction projects. More integrated research is being planned for Ruoyu's scholarly work, including BIM used for health and safety monitoring, BIM for waste generation estimate, and Internet of Things applied in the performance monitoring of off-site construction projects. Ruoyu perceives that BIM, as part of Internet of Things, can be further developed to be integrated with off-site construction, construction safety management, innovative construction materials, and integrated project delivery system.

Ruoyu is a research member of Built Environment Research and Enterprise Group, and Sustainability and Resilience Engineering (SuRE) at University of Brighton. He has published over 50 peer-reviewed scholarly works including journal articles, conference proceedings, and book chapters. The service work being carried by Ruoyu includes: peer reviewer for eight international journals in the field of built environment and civil engineering; Editorial Advisory Panel Member of ICE’s International Journal Management, Procurement and Law; and associate member for CRIOCM Youth Committee in the field of construction management.

Approach to teaching

Ruoyu's major teaching experience includes Building Information Modelling (BIM), civil engineering materials, structural design, foundation and concrete, and construction technology.
