and development of innovative strategies, methods, technologies, and tools
for improving sustainability, safety, and health of construction working environments
and infrastructure systems. While at WVU, Dr. Dai has developed an active,
independent research program and built its research strengths in construction
informatics and workplace safety and health. Dr. Dai has been serving on the
editorial board of ASCE Journal of Construction Engineering and Management
since 2013 and currently is the Vice Chair of the ASCE Visualization, Information
Modeling, and Simulation (VIMS) Committee. His contribution to service was
acknowledged with four-time Outstanding Reviewer Recognition by ASCE.
Mohhammad Sujon graduated from Bangladesh University of Engineering Technology in
2013 with B.Sc. in Civil Engineering studying pavement maintenance practices
as the thesis. In 2016, he completed M.Sc. in Advanced Computational and Civil
Engineering Structural Studies from the Technical University of Dresden, Germany
in which he undertook research works on simulation modeling for structural
analysis. He joined West Virginia University as a Graduate Research Assistant
in 2019 to pursue Ph.D. in Civil Engineering. His current research works are
focused on the application of machine learning and computer vision to analyze
big data to develop insightful information involving infrastructure asset maintenance.
Linjun Lu is a PhD candidate at the Integrated Construction Informatics Laboratory
of West Virginia University. He received his Bachelor’s and Master’s degree
in Structural Engineering at Wenzhou University in 2016 and 2019. His PhD project
