Dr Husein Perez

Research Fellow in Construction Informatics

School of the Built Environment


Dr. Husein Perez joined the School of the Built Environment in January 2019 as a Research Fellow in Construction Informatics.  He obtained his PhD in Scientific Computing from Oxford Brookes University in 2016 in the School of Engineering Computing and Maths.

Prior to joining Brookes University as a research fellow in construction informatics, Dr. Perez worked as a Technical Consultant for Wolfram Research Europe and as R&D Scientist in Computer Vision at Fuel3D. He has a special interest in Machine Learning, particularly, in Deep Learning, Convolutional Neural Networks and in Computer Vision.  His research is devoted to the application of artificial intelligence and machine learning techniques in the construction domain with a particular focus on automated building defects detection.
