Professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering, Stanford University

Dr. Levitt's research program develops theory, methods, and tools to design organization structures and governance regimes for project and matrix organization structures in construction and other project-based industries.

Dr. Levitt's current research, conducted through the Global Projects Center (GPC), which he founded and directs, is aimed at developing new financing, governance and organizational approaches to enhance the long-term financial, environmental and social sustainability of these critically needed, but institutionally challenging, projects. In recognition of this work, he was appointed by Governor Schwarzenegger as a Commissioner of the California Public Infrastructure Advisory Commission (PIAC) in 2008 and served as a Commissioner of PIAC from 2008-2013.
