Arash holds a multidisciplinary Ph.D. in Architectural Robotics and a certificate in Digital Ecologies from Clemson University’s School of Architecture in collaboration with the faculty
and researchers in Electrical & Computing Engineering, Materials Science & Engineering,
Education, and Human Factors Psychology. The objective of his research is to focus
on the design, prototyping and evaluation of “Intelligent Systems” employing embedded
computation within the context of the built and natural environments. His teaching
efforts focus on the integration of environmental technologies and metric-based systems
within the architectural design process as well as advising thesis students. His architecture
concentrates on intelligent forms while inventing new possibilities for content and
everyday use; it is a concept of futurism through a persistent investigation of the
symbiotic potentials in nature and technology. Previously, Arash taught at the University
of North Carolina Charlotte and Clemson University.
Arash is the author of “Responsive and Interactive Environments in Museums: managing responsiveness and interactivity
within museums and exhibitions in a new fashion” (Lambert Publishers, 2013), and several ACM publications in the area of designing
cyber-physical systems and computational thinking.
