Pardis Pishdad-Bozorgi honored among Engineering News-Record's, National 'Top 20 Under 40'
Congratulations to our very own, Assistant Professor Pardis Pishdad-Bozorgi, an honoree of Engineering News-Record's, National "Top 20 Under 40."
ENR’s Top 20 Under 40 class of 2018 was selected from 475 nominations submitted last fall from all niches of the industry. ENR’s 10 regional U.S. editions assembled local juries that identified up to 20 winners in each region. A panel of new national judges reviewed the 50 top-scoring individuals among those 177 regional winners and selected these 20 individuals to represent the pinnacle of leadership skills, community service, work ethic, and talent.
“'These emerging construction leaders epitomize an industry that is transitioning from an image of Caucasian blue-collar kingpins to a community of well-educated professionals embracing a diverse workforce and rapidly-changing technologies,' says E. Colette Nelson, former chief advocacy officer for the American Subcontractors Association, and one of five judges for the competition." - ENR
Pishdad-Bozorgi has been the recipient of numerous international, national, and regional awards and recognition for her excellence in research and teaching. "My research goal is to develop innovative strategies that would enhance design/engineering/construction/facility operation and management integration and promote trust and collaboration in the industry" noted Pishdad-Bozorgi.
At Georgia Tech, she has developed and taught new courses, such as “Integrated Design, Construction & Development,” and “Building Information Modeling.”
Pishdad-Bozorgi holds a Ph.D., three master's degrees, and a bachelor's degree in different but complementing disciplines of Construction Management, Civil Engineering, Project Management, Architecture, and Architectural Engineering. Pishdad-Bozorgi’s unique and multi-disciplinary educational background has given her a broad, yet in-depth perspective for designing, engineering, managing, and constructing a built environment.
