Dr. Mukherjee's interests are in the areas of Construction Management and Transportation Infrastructure Management Systems. He is currently teaching a course in Construction Estimation, Planning and Control. His research interests lie in developing interactive and adaptive process simulation platforms that can be used as decision making aids, in training decision makers and also to better understand human cognitive and decision-making processes in construction. The broader goal of the research is to study the construction management (CM) domain as a tightly coupled system of human and resource interactions and to integrate it with existing construction theories to develop a systemic perspective of the complexities in the CM domain. Dr. Mukherjee is also interested in Engineering Education research.
