CV

Dr. Chung-Suk Cho has more than 13 years of combined industry and university experience in the field of construction and project management. Prior to joining Khalifa University, he worked as an Assistant Professor in the Department of Engineering Technology and Construction Management at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, as well as North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University at Greensboro. He formerly served as a project manager with Fluor Corporation at Rumford, Rhode Island. Dr. Cho’s research interest spans such topics as project scope definitions, front-end planning, construction safety, engineering education, and sustainable construction particularly focusing on construction CO2 emission reduction. Dr. Cho has managed several research projects, as well as external research funding, from various U.S. federal and state agencies, such as NSF, OSHA (US Department of Labor), ASCE Construction Institute, and NCDOT. He is a member of ASCE, an Associate Editor of KSCE Journal of Civil Engineering, and an OSHA construction outreach trainer.
