  1. Building Information Modelling (BIM) and associated technologies and their impact on the construction sector.
  2. Indoor Environmental Quality: Dr Kaushik investigates the impact of indoor environmental design on occupant comfort, productivity, and well-being.
  3. Technology in Built Environment: The use of artificial intelligence, machine learning, and big data in supporting design decision-making and enhancing building performance is a crucial area of interest for Dr Kaushik.
  4. Construction Innovation: Focusing on exploring new construction methods like off-site construction for improved efficiency, quality, and sustainability forms a crucial aspect of Dr Kaushik's work.
  5. Lean Construction: The application of lean principles and target value design/delivery in the construction industry to reduce waste and enhance value is another area of Dr Kaushik's study.
