Dr Paul Missa



Currently, as well as modules leadership and delivery at both UG and PG levels, I also supervise projects/dissertations (using Canvas). In my recent past, I had been working on converting Highways' Knowledge Transfer Partnership (KTP) Projects on Lean Construction/Manufacturing into publications and teaching materials for Built Environment modules. Additionally, I had developed a business idea for a Sustainable Social Enterprise start-up and completed an hourly paid lectureship designing, updating and developing new modules for Built Environment and Civil Engineering students. Prior to these, I worked as a Graduate Teaching Assistant while undertaking my PhD programme. I had also worked as a lecturer/teacher, researcher and projects administrator predominantly with the DFID, gaining extensive experience in multidisciplinary research with a track record of publications in the UK and overseas.


My interests are varied and multidisciplinary covering areas including: Construction Management and Economics; Business Management and Administration; Project/Operations Management & Strategy, HRM & Organisational Behaviour; Diversity Management and Employment; Ethnic, Cultural and Migration Studies; Sustainable Employment; Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR); Community Development; Sustainable Development [(Socio-Cultural, Political, Technological, Economic and Environmental Sustainability): Sustainable Resource/Waste Management, Climate Change Adaptation, Sustainable Construction, Sustainable Procurement &Administration;  Logistics & Supply Chain etc.].
