Hemanta Doloi


Having trained in Civil Engineering and with over six year of industry experience with a multi-national construction company, Dr Doloi contributed extensively in research and teaching in the areas of Project Management, Infrastructure Planning and Policy and Construction Economics and Management. His research resulted in the establishment of a new project management concept known as Life Cycle Project Management (LCPM) empowering optimal decision making across project life cycle.

Dr Doloi is at the forefront of conducting numerous empirical and conceptual research in vast areas of construction and project management including project failures and success, risks and uncertainty minimisation and quantification of social sustainability and value creation in capital projects. His research efforts have contributed to the advanced modelling techniques and big data analytics for developing capacity in housing, infrastructure support and community development. Focusing on the rural infrastructure planning and development, Dr Doloi currently leads the "Smart Villages Program" at the Faculty of Architecture, Building and Planning. Being a founding director of the Smart Villages Lab (SVL), Dr Doloi emphasises on the empirical research for developing policies in the areas of affordable housing, smart governance and need-based development focusing on rural and regional community. Dr Doloi is the founding Chair of the International Conference on Smart Villages and Rural Development (COSVARD) for bringing together academia, industry practitioners and policy makers from around the globe for exchanging ideas and developing capacity for rural community empowerment. So far, Dr Doloi has published over 200 research papers in reputable peer reviewed journals and conferences in Construction Management and Engineering internationally. In addition, Dr Doloi is the lead author of the book "Planning, Housing and Infrastructure for Smart Villages" published by Routledge, UK in 2019. Dr. Doloi is widely consulted for corporate training courses on project risk management, project scheduling and control, project financial analysis and project management fundamentals leading to professional qualifications such as PMP in the corporate world. In 2012, Dr Doloi's outstanding contribution into research and teaching has been recognised by honouring him the nationally competitive "Infinite Value Award in Research and Teaching" by the Australian Institute of Quantity Surveyors (AIQS). Currently, Dr Doloi serves in the International Editorial Board of the International Journal of Project Management and in the Editorial Board of the Built Environment Project and Asset Management Journal.
