Construction industry group honors Ashuri as outstanding researcher


The Construction Industry Institute has selected Baabak Ashuri as its 2018 Outstanding Early Career Researcher.

The group honored Ashuri at its technology conference in late March in part for his work on data analytics to improve design productivity for the industry. The award is one of the Celebration of Engineering & Technology Innovation Awards that “recognize significant achievements in technology research, development, and implementation in the capital projects industry,” according to the institute.

The early career honor is reserved for researchers who’ve been working fewer than 10 years. Ashuri is an associate professor in the Schools of Civil and Environmental Engineering and Building Construction at Tech.
