Payam Rahnamayiezekavat

BSc SUT, MSc SUT, PhD UNSW

Senior Lecturer

After completing his PhD at University of New South Wales (UNSW), Dr Payam Rahnamayiezekavat joined Curtin University where he lectured in the Department of Construction Management.

In 2017, Payam transferred to Victoria University to undertake the role of senior lecturer of Building in the College of Engineering and Science.

As an active researcher, his research agenda includes a range of disruptive solutions to address poor performance in the construction industry. Payam is also active in developing futuristic learning and teaching techniques to enhance work-readiness and employability of Engineering and Construction Management students.
