Biography

Dr Shou is a lecturer of Construction Management at Western Sydney University. She received the Ph.D. degree in construction management from Curtin University, Australia in 2018 and worked as a research fellow at Curtin University for one year. Her research interests are in value stream mapping, lean construction, Building Information Modelling, and simulation, exploring the application of digital lean to improve construction and operation performance across building, infrastructure, and oil and gas industries. She has played the role of lead researcher in many research projects, including 3 research projects on BIM-enabled project digitalisation and construction automation funded by Sustainable Built Environment national research centre (SBEnrc); the research on Lean Maintenance Research to Minimise Shutdown Turnaround Time sponsored by Woodside Energy Ltd; and the project of Lean thinking for process mapping, evaluation and improvement funded by KAEFER.She is one of the CIs of ARC Linkage Project - Structural assembly for remote housing in Australia using fibre reinforced composites which were secured in 2019. She has secured one grant from Innovation Connections in 2021.
