Biography

Saeed Talebi holds a PhD in ‘Architecture and the Built Environment’ from the University of Huddersfield. He was awarded the prestigious PhD Scholarship of £52,000 from the School of Art, Design, and Architecture, University of Huddersfield for his PhD. Dr Saeed Talebi is Lecturer and Acting Departmental Lead for recruitment at the Department of Architecture and 3D Design. His role combines teaching, research and administration. He has taught on several areas including Building Information Modelling in architectural design and construction, Project Planning and Control, and Lean Construction at both UG and PG levels. 

His current research interest is in the areas of dimensional tolerance management, condition monitoring of infrastructure, off-site construction, and platform design using technologies such as 3D scanning, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV), thermal imaging camera, Building Information Model (BIM), and Artificial Intelligence. Bringing practical experience of working on a number of projects, he is researching and helping teams manage the interfaces between theory and practice.

Saeed is currently a co-investigator of a £120K project funded by Network Rail. This project utilises emerging surveying methods and Artificial Intelligence to replace visual inspection of rail bridges.

Dr Talebi co-founded the Transforming Construction Taskforce in Platform Design and Mass Customisation in July 2019 at the University of Huddersfield along with leading research teams and more than 45 public, private sector organisations. The Taskforce is a collaborative platform of researchers and the industry, and acts as an inspiration for the further development of innovative activities in construction, in particular for the platform design and mass customisation. Moreover, he is a board member of the Community of Practitioners-Lean Construction Institute, North West Chapter, and is an active member of International Group for Lean Construction.
