Nigel Zhuwaki's profile
Transportation Engineer : Smart Cities and Sustainable Urban MobilityBio
I hold Master of Engineering in Engineering Management and a Bachelor of Engineering in Civil Engineering from Stellenbosch University. Using asset performance data my postgraduate research utilised reliability engineering and systems engineering to develop a model to support reliability-based maintenance and management of transport infrastructure systems. The model was successfully applied to a case study for the Passenger Rail Agency of South Africa (PRASA) to quantify and predict the reliability performance of railway infrastructure assets for maintenance and management interventions. I am looking for opportunities related to the application of big data in the built environment. I am knowledgeable in Intelligent Infrastructure Systems and Smart Urban Mobility Platforms. I have keen interests in public transport transformation and the application of big data to build smart infrastructure systems.Outside of my academic work, I am a creative photographer and I write about urban development. I am a member of the South African Institute of Civil Engineers (SAICE: Reg No. 2012630) and I am registered with the Engineering Council of South Africa (ECSA: Reg No.201650561) as a Candidate Engineer.
