Professor Hussein Dia

Department Chair, Civil & Construction Engineering
Doctor of Philosophy - Transport Studies, Monash University, Australia; Masters of Civil Engineering, Purdue University, United States; Bachelor of Civil Engineering, Purdue University, United States


I am professor of Future Urban Mobility in the Faculty of Science, Engineering and Technology. I currently serve as the Chair of the Department of Civil and Construction Engineering and Program Leader of the Smart Cities Research Institute's Future Urban Mobility program. In my role as Chair of Civil Engineering, I work alongside a highly dedicated academic team who have collectively positioned Civil Engineering as one of the highly regarded Civil Engineering departments in the country. In this role, I work with internal & external stakeholders to build on the success of the team and position the Department for further growth, success and recognition. In my role as Program Leader in the Smart Cities Research Institute, I facilitate interdisciplinary research and actively engage with external organisations to identify issues and needs that the Institute can address through its thematic research program. 

My research interests are in the convergence of technology, infrastructure and human elements in urban environments. My current work is focused on disruptive mobility and harnessing digital innovations to unlock potential opportunities for low carbon mobility. My current research includes investigations of how autonomous vehicles, Blockchain, Internet of Things and the sharing economy are set to transform mobility in the world's cities. My standing in this field is demonstrated by more than 100 publications including books on ITS and low carbon mobility for future cities.

I am a Chartered Professional Engineer, Fellow of the American Society of Civil Engineers, Fellow of Engineers Australia, and Fellow of the Institute of Transportation Engineers. I have previously served as Board Member of ITS Australia, and currently serve as Senior Editor for the international journal IEEE Transactions on ITS.
