Dr. Mohamed Al-Hussein, PhD, P.Eng.
Professor, NSERC Industrial Research Chair in the Industrialization of Building Construction
Director, Nasseri School of Building Science and Engineering
University of Alberta

Dr. Mohamed Al-Hussein is a professor and Industrial Research Chair (IRC) in the Industrialization of Building Construction at the University of Alberta, and a highly sought researcher and consultant in the areas of lean manufacturing, construction process optimization, CO2 emission quantification, and building information modelling (BIM), with the development of modular and offsite construction technologies and practices forming the hub of his research.

Dr. Al-Hussein’s research has contributed to construction automation as applied to equipment selection and on-site utilization. His participation overseeing the crane lifts of concrete panels at a mansion project in Long Island, NY, helped to establish his reputation as a world-class researcher in this field. Since then, his research has continued to develop crane selection and utilization algorithms. Dr. Al-Hussein's work in the area of crane utilization has led to a number of innovations to minimize the cost and footprint associated with crane operations on industrial sites.

Dr. Al-Hussein has also successfully applied lean principles to improve work methods and productivity standards, including the City of Edmonton Drainage Operations. One unique application has been Dr. Al-Hussein's work on optimization of invoice processing for construction organizations. Dr. Al-Hussein’s research has developed best practices for panelized building systems, lean production, and modular construction.
