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.
