Duties and Responsibilities
Dr Marianthi Leon is Course Leader for MSc Commercial Practice for the Energy Sectors within Scott Sutherland School of Architecture and the Built Environment.
Dr Marianthi Leon has a long-standing interest and extensive research experience in Collaboration Management and ICT applications to support teams’ efficiency, involving 3D scanning and HCI among others. She is a lecturer on Project and Construction Management in Robert Gordon University while being involved in a number of research projects both within academia and industry.
Coming from the built environment industry and being a registered architect, Dr Leon has expertise on three fronts:
- Managing multidisciplinary collaborations and conflicts
- The application of visualisation, 3D data acquisition and argumentation methods to support multidisciplinary teams’ efficiency
- Transferring and applying this knowledge to and from Construction/ Infrastructure and O&G industry.
