Faculty of Engineering and Technology

Dr Kraidi is a Senior Lecturer(Assistant Professor) at the School of Civil Engineering and Built Environment.

Dr Kraidi has a PhD in Civil Engineering-Construction Projects Management, with research interests in risk management.

Layth is working on developing risk management frameworks and computer-based models to mitigate the risk factors associated with projects in the construction industry.

His research interests cover project management; risk management; projects' success factors (finish the projects within time and planned budget); critical risk factors (e.g. safety and security risks); computer modelling and simulation ( e.g. fuzzy logic theory and Monte Carlo Simulation) and other topics in the fields of project management and construction management.
Currently, he is working on these research topics
• Digital Twines, VR and AR applications in the construction industry
• 3D scanning and point clouds
• Simulation, AI and Real-life Scenarios
• Automated maintenance (prioritised and advanced maintenance planning)
• Technology Innovations, Robotics and Automation in Construction
• 3D, 4D, 5D and 6D BIM
• Fuzzy Logic Theory and Monti Carlo Simulation
• Risk Management, risk identification, rote causes, risk ranking (design, construction, operation and maintenance)
• Health and Safety
• Risk management and mitigation methods
• Project Management (delay and cost overrun)
• Construction Management and Site Production
• Oil and Gas pipelines
• Data Collection, Surveys, Interviews, Focus Groups, Delphi, AHP
• Surveying and Geomatics


Before joining LJMU, my UK-based academic experience involved working at three colleges (as a lecturer) and two universities (as a research assistant and a lecturer).

I have taught various courses in civil engineering, construction engineering, construction management and project management appliances for Level 3, T Levels, Level 4, Level 5, Level 6 and Level 7 students.

I have five years of experience in the construction industry, as I worked as a site supervisor and team leader in a $160M oil and gas depository project. I was the safety engineer in an oil refinery.
