Mahdi Kioumarsi


Mahdi Kioumarsi is an Associate Professor at the Department of Civil Engineering and Energy Technology of OsloMet—Oslo Metropolitan University in Oslo, Norway. He holds a Ph.D. in Structural engineering, from Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU).
His research has been ranging from large scale (complete structures) to small scale (material level) within the field of concrete structures. Common for all his research is the combination of modelling and experimental work. The modelling includes both the use of non-linear finite element analyses, and analytical calculations. He has many years of experience doing research on structural analysis, numerical modeling, and sustainable constructions. His current research centers on the feasibility of digital technologies (i.e., BIM, digital twin, and artificial intelligence) for smart construction to minimize the built environment’s carbon footprint. He has completed various collaborative projects with international academic and industrial partners and has more than 40 papers published in peer-reviewed journals. He is serving as a reviewer for several international scientific journals.
