Aliakbar Kamari


Aliakbar Kamari, b. 1987, was graduated from Department of Architectural Engineering at IAU, IRAN in 2009 and subsequently joined as an architect engineer in consultant corporations, twice, more than 4 years. Since 2010, he commenced his postgraduate degree and then graduated from Department of Civil Engineering in the field of Construction & Management at University of Pune, INDIA in 2012. Then, he worked as an instructor in “Tehran Institute of Technology” since 2013 involving in research and teaching activities related to “Building Information Modeling (BIM)” and its related tools. He spent the triennium of his Ph.D studies for a fully funded double degree Ph.D program in Department of Engineering, Aarhus University, DENMARK, and Department of Architecture, University of Palermo, ITALY, carrying out an INTERDISCIPLINARY research study related to Renovation/Retrofitting of the Existing Buildings. In this period, he has collaborated to the Danish RE-VALUE research project as well. He is presently performing a post-doc period within Value Creation by Energy Renovation and Transformation of the Built Environment associated to the Re-Value project, in Department of Engineering, Aarhus University, DENMARK.

Aliakbar’s research study in Ph.D has explored development of a multi-methodology and sustainability-supporting framework for implementation and assessment of a holistic building renovation. The thesis explored methodologies in Decision-making, Management Science, and Engineering Design to include Soft Systems Methodologies (SSM) and Hard Systems Methodologies (HSM) in parallel. In addition, the thesis appreciated the notion of sustainability. Aliakbar is vastly interested to perform further research related to the Methodology, Design Methodology, Building Design Methodology, Problem Structuring, BIM and its tools, and BIM-based Decision Support Systems in building design sector. This entails to include Systems Oriented Design (SOD) principles through use of BIM framework. Therefore, Aliakbar’s effort is to address and expand the concept of BIM through an equipped design methodology for the future of building design sector.
