Biography

Professor Richard Haigh joined the University of Huddersfield in 2014 as Co-Director of the Global Disaster Resilience Centre at the School of Art, Design and Architecture. This multi-disciplinary Centre is committed to excellence in research and collaboration to improve the resilience of nations and communities to disasters.

Richard was previously a Professor at the University of Salford, where he studied and worked for 20 years. He undertook a degree in Construction Management before commencing his doctoral studies in 1998, which focused on the development of a process capacity maturity model for the construction industry. Richard worked as a research assistant and fellow in several major EPSRC and NHS funded projects prior to joining the University as a lecturer in 2003. Richard went on to contribute to a wide range of teaching and research activities at Salford’s School of the Built Environment, while also serving in several School management roles, including as Director of Research Training and Co-Director of Postgraduate Research for the School’s 200+ PhD students. Richard became a Professor in 2012 and prior to joining Huddersfield in 2014, was Acting Associate Head of Research & Innovation at Salford’s School of the Built Environment, No.1 in Research Power at the last RAE for Architecture and the Built Environment.

Richard is a Founding Editor of the International Journal of Disaster Resilience in the Built Environment, published by Emerald and indexed in Scopus. It is the only journal to promote research and scholarly activity that examines the role of building and construction to anticipate and respond to unexpected events that damage or destroy the built environment. Richard is also a Founder and Co-Chair of the International Conferences on Building Resilience, a series of multi-disciplinary, international gatherings for academics, practitioners and policy that are focused on tackling disaster risk and the development of disaster resilient communities. The fifth event in the series will take place in Newcastle, Australia in 2015, while previous events have been held in Sri Lanka and the United Kingdom.

Richard has a world-wide network of partners from policy, government, industry and academia who support his work. He contributes to the United Nations International Strategy for Disaster Reduction (UNISDR) Making Cities Resilient: 'My City is getting ready!' campaign, launched in May 2010, which addresses issues of local governance and urban risk. Richard co-hosted the campaign Steering Committee alongside the 2014 International Conference on Building Resilience.

Richard has obtained thirteen research grants since 2005 in the areas of disaster resilience, construction management and education, covering issues such climate change adaptation, social impact of post-conflict reconstruction, gender, curricular development, knowledge management, capacity building for resilience, and education in the built environment.

Richard is Principal Investigator of the €800,000, EU funded ANDROID Network (Academic Network for Disaster Resilience to Optimise Educational Development), a consortium of 67 institutions across 31 countries committed to promote co-operation and innovation to increase society’s resilience to disasters of human and natural origin. Richard was also Principal Investigator of Conflict Prevention through Infrastructure Reconstruction, a 12-month intervention to enhance the capacity of local stakeholders to deliver conflict sensitive infrastructure reconstruction programmes within the North and East of Sri Lanka, and thereby to help prevent future conflict in the region. The project was funded by the UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office through the British High Commission in Colombo.

Richard has published 28 peer refereed journal articles, over 150 peer refereed conference articles, 1 edited book, 7 book chapters, and 13 reports for a variety of stakeholders. Richard has also delivered over 40 invited speeches and keynote presentations for audiences in the UK, Australia, New Zealand, USA, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Malaysia, Hong Kong, Canada, Estonia, Lithuania, and South Africa.

  • 2010-date Fellow of International Institute for Infrastructure Renewal and Reconstruction (IIIRR), a multi-university international consortium, which provides overall leadership in research, education, planning, design and implementation for mitigation of the impact of natural disasters and infrastructure renewal and reconstruction projects in tsunami affected or underdeveloped regions. I Co-Chaired the 2011 Annual Conference of IIIRR, the International Conference on Building Resilience, Kandalama, Sri Lanka. The Conference was the largest in the Institute’s history, with 110 attendees.
  • 2010 Organising Committee Member & Leader of Disasters and the Built Environment theme, 2010 CIB World Congress, Salford Quays, UK. The conference was attended by over international 600 delegates.
  • 2009-date Founding Editor-In-Chief, the International Journal of Disaster Resilience in the Built Environment, the only journal to promote research and scholarly activity that examines the role of building and construction to anticipate and respond to unexpected events that damage or destroy the built environment. The journal is published by Emerald Publishing and indexed in the British Library, Construction and Building Abstracts, ICONDA - The International Construction Database, Business Source Premier (EBSCO), ABI INFORM Global (ProQuest), Cambridge Scientific Abstracts (ProQuest), INSPEC and Scopus (the supplier of data to REF 2013). An application for inclusion in ISI was submitted in May 2012.
  • 2009-date Academic Advisor (alternate) to United Nations International Strategy for Disaster Reduction (UNISDR) Making Cities Resilient campaign. I have worked to shape and influence policy made by government and quasi-government bodies by contributing to the campaign, which addresses issues of local governance and urban risk. I have advised the campaign with respect to the benefits of resilience and disaster risk reduction in enhancing the effectiveness and efficiency of urban services, the monitoring and reporting of the application of the 10 essentials, and city level disaster risk reduction organisation. These principles were incorporated into the ten essential areas for resilience that are being promoted to mayors and local government from over 1,150 participant cities across the world. In doing so, the centre’s research is supporting local government officials that are faced with the threat of disasters on a daily basis and need better access to policies and tools to effectively deal with them. The Making Cities Resilient campaign was a partner of the 2011 International Conference on Building Resilience, for which I was Co-Chair.
  • 2009-date Advisor to the Ministry of Disaster Management, Sri Lanka. My work on post disaster reconstruction, conflict and gender sensitive principles for reconstruction, stakeholder engagement and inclusive development, has influenced professional standards, guidelines and training in Sri Lanka, a country that has been subject to several large scale disasters in recent years, including the 2004 Indian Ocean Tsunami and a civil war spanning three decades. I have been working alongside local stakeholders to develop the capacity of stakeholders to create a built environment that is more resilient to the threats posed by natural and human hazards. This capacity development has been achieved through a series of international conferences in Sri Lanka (2008, 2011) that I co-chaired, and numerous training workshops held in conjunction with the Chamber of Construction Industry Sri Lanka, United Nations Development Programme, the Ministry of Disaster Management, and the city of Batticaloa’s local government. These events provided guidance and input for the council officers, and construction and humanitarian professionals that attended, and who are working on respective policy changes and plans incorporating disaster risk reduction concepts in their city development plans.
  • 2008 Co-Chair, CIB W89 International Building Education and Research Conference (BEAR) in Kandalama Sri Lanka, which took place in February 2008. The conference theme was to promote built environment related education and research towards a more expansive view of the life cycle of infrastructure projects, one that extends beyond the traditional cycle of feasibility analysis, planning, design, construction, operation, maintenance and divestiture. The conference was attended by 170 academics from across the world. The conference was widely commended by external academics and practitioners (www.bear2008.org).
  • 2007 Co-Chair of the Scientific Committee, 2007 International Postgraduate Research Conference, Salford Quays, UK.
  • 2006-date Guest Lecturer and International Advisor, Department of Building Economics, University of Moratuwa, Sri Lanka.
  • 2006-2010 Proposer and Joint Coordinator with Dr Cassidy Johnson (UCL) of CIB Task Group 63, Disasters and the Built Environment, a working group of CIB’s network of over 5000 experts from about 500 member organisations active in the research community, in industry or education. Through leadership of TG63 I set the context for research and stimulating ideas for future research by exploring the range of perspectives from which the construction industry is able to contribute towards improved resilience to disruptive challenges and by facilitating the dissemination of the existing knowledgebase. As proposer and coordinator, I defined the aim and scope of the Task Group; devised an appropriate research strategy to meet the objectives; liaised with the CIB to establish the group; and organised and chaired a series of meetings and paper sessions at major international Conferences in Rome (2006), Cape Town (2007), Kandalama Sri Lanka (2008), Auckland (2008), Gainsville (2009) and Salford (2010). By 2010, the Task Group had become a major theme of CIB, with over 30 papers presented at the World Congress in Salford Quays. The Task Group also formed the basis for CIB endorsement of the International Journal of Disaster Resilience in the Built Environment.
  • 2006 Co-Chair of the Scientific Committee, 2006 International Postgraduate Research Conference, Delft, the Netherlands.
  • 2005-date Senior member of W89 Building Education and Research, a working group of CIB’s network of over 5000 experts from about 500 member organisations in the research community, in industry or in education. W89 is a key focal point for international collaboration and exchange of thinking and ideas related to practices and theories of construction education and research. Chaired sessions on education themes at the annual W89 conference since 2005, held in Australia, Hong Kong, South Africa, Sri Lanka and the USA, and the UK. I was Co-Chair of the 2008 W89 International Building Education and Research Conference in Sri Lanka, which provided a platform for over 170 academics to address strategic and practical issues associated with incorporating research and enterprise findings into the curriculum.
