Professor Karim Hadjri

Chair and Head of School of Architecture

Karim Hadjri

I joined the Sheffield School of Architecture in September 2016 from the University of Central Lancashire where I held a Chair in Architecture.

Previously I was a Reader in Architecture at the Queen’s University Belfast. I am an architect with a Master of Philosophy and a Doctor of Philosophy in housing studies completed at the Joint Centre for Urban Design at Oxford Brookes University. I have worked as a scholar in the United Kingdom, UAE and Saudi Arabia, and managed academic units and research centres in both Cyprus and Colombia. I have led and contributed to over twenty research projects worldwide since 1992.

I am originally from Algeria and my wife is from Colombia. My only son who is now 23 years old was born in Cyprus.

I believe the BAME Staff Network is a great means to know more about this minority group and their contribution to the University and society.
