I graduated with a Doctorate in Design (DDes) from Florida International University in 2022. I hold a Master of Emergent Technologies and Design (EmTech) from the Architectural Association (AA) in London (2010) and a Bachelor of Architecture from Southern California Institute of Architecture (SCI-Arc) in Los Angeles (2006). I have a wide range of teaching experience in fields that include computational design, material systems, sustainable design, and digital fabrication. I have worked as a designer in renowned international firms, Skidmore, Owings & Merrill (SOM) in Los Angeles, Glavovic Studio in Miami and Sinam Consulting in Tehran. My research interest lies in data-driven generative computation design and integration of biomimetic approaches with material systems.
