Dr Tom Beach
Lecturer - Teaching and Research
Dr Beach is a lecturer in Construction Informatics who holds a PhD in Computer Science and has been working in the built environment research field for over 5 years.
Dr Beach’s research focuses on innovation in the built environment field underpinned by state of the art computing technologies. This combination of a background in Computer Science, a solid grounding in the built environment field, and expertise in Building Information Modelling (BIM) and built environment semantics, makes Dr Beach ideally placed to conduct research towards creating a more intelligent, efficient and adaptable built environment.
More specifically, Dr Beach's research interests include: (a) specification and implementation of building/district/city data storage, (b) the Internet of Things(IoT) and its application to the monitoring and control of the built environment, (c) data analytics including machine learning and artificial intelligence, (d) application of cloud/distributed computing to data storage and processing for built environment applications and (e) the semantics of data within the built environment.
