Dr. Yangming Shi joined the Department of Civil, Construction and Environmental Engineering at the University of Alabama as an Assistant Professor in Fall 2021. Before he joins UA, he worked as a postdoctoral research associate in the Department of Civil and Coastal Engineering at the University of Florida, where he was the main participant of the NSF-funded project on developing Learning Environments with Augmentation and Robotics for Next-gen Emergency Responders (LEARNER).
His research focuses on developing data-driven solutions to improve human performance and augment human capabilities for future design, construction, and engineering process. His research interests lie in Virtual Reality (VR)/Augmented Reality (AR), Human-Centered Artificial Intelligence (AI), human-robot collaboration, Construction informatics, and Human Factors in construction. When he was a Ph.D. student at UF, he contributed to the research projects funded by NSF, NIST, and NASA. He has over 13 publications in premier academic journals and over 11 peer-reviewed conference proceedings.
