Dr. Ian Flood

Dr. Ian Flood received his Ph.D. from the University of Manchester, UK, on serial and parallel computing techniques applied to the simulation of construction processes. He has held academic positions at the National University of Singapore, the Department of Civil Engineering at the University of Maryland, and he is currently UF Research Foundation Professor and Holland Professor at the Rinker School of Construction Management, University of Florida.  He has published over 150 refereed articles on the subjects of simulation modeling and intelligent computing applied to civil and construction engineering and management, he has received several best paper awards, and is the most frequently cited authors within the ASCE Journal of Computing in Civil Engineering.  Dr. Flood has received awards for teaching, international education, and was the 2015 recipient of the ASCE Computing in Civil Engineering Award.  His main areas of research have been concerned with the development of new methods of modeling construction and manufacturing systems, and intelligent empirically-based methods of modeling complex engineering processes.  He is currently Specialty Editor for ASCE’s Journal of Computing in Civil Engineering, and Elsevier’s Journal of Advanced Engineering Informatics. Dr. Flood was previously Chair of the Executive Committee of TCCIT (the Technical Council on Computing and Information Technology) for the American Society of Civil Engineers.
