About

Dr Boris Ceranic is a long standing Programme Leader of undergraduate and postgraduate architectural courses and an experienced academic, practitioner and researcher.  He has spent ten years on the construction sites and in his own design and build practice, prior to entering academia. Since then, he remained research and practice active, publishing on an international level and chairing panels at the international conferences, referring international journals, undertaking PhD supervision and examination, and engaging in externally funded research projects and consultancy, all of which are based on the real build projects and case studies.
