With a focus on research in data practices, collaboration, technologies and building information modeling, Carrie Sturts Dossick is helping to redefine interdisciplinary practices. Some of those efforts include research in technology and collaboration strategies for green building; global virtual teams; applications of BIM and COBie in operations; integrated project delivery; and measuring successful BIM and collaboration applications. At the University of Washington, she created and developed the virtual construction focus area for the master in construction management program, which includes interdisciplinary cooperation with the UW Dept. of Architecture, the Information School and the Dept. of Computer Science and Engineering. In 2007, she received the National Teaching Award from the Associated Schools of Construction.
