Hi, my name is Junjie Chen. I am a research assistant professor in the Department of Real Estate and Construction at The University of Hong Kong. Before my current position, I am a postdoc at HKU. I obtained my PhD in hydraulic engineering from Tianjin University in 2020, and was a visiting researcher at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville from 2018 to 2019. I am an affiliate member of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), a member of Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), and a member of the Chinese Hydraulic Engineering Society (CHES).
My research covers a broad area in smart and sustainable construction and built environment: Building Information Modeling (BIM), Computer Vision, Machine Learning, Intelligent Compaction, and building and infrastructure inspection.
I am particularly interested in leveraging latest computation instruments (AI, robotics, BIM) to advance our understanding on the increasingly aging built environment (BE), and to provide means for technical and policy intervention to manage the aged BE.
