Dr Seyed Ghaffar is a Chartered Civil Engineer (CEng, MICE), a Member of the Institute of Concrete Technology (MICT) and a Fellow of Higher Education Academy (FHEA). He is an Associate Professor in Civil Engineering and Founder and Director of Additive Manufacturing Technology in Construction (AMTC) Research Centre at Brunel University London. The focus of AMTC is on valorising construction and demolition waste using materials science and 3D printing to achieve the circular economy goals of sustainable construction.
His research covers several construction materials, with a focus on the development of low-carbon technologies suitable for new and retrofitting applications by combining materials sciences and innovative technologies. Dr Ghaffar has been successful in attracting research grants of circa £6 million on 8 projects funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council, British Council, and the European Commission.
He has authored more than 60 peer-reviewed journal papers and recently edited a book titled "Innovation in Construction: A Practical Guide to Transforming the Construction Industry".
Attendance certificates are available on request after the completion of the webinar.
