Short Biography

With a background in architecture, I worked from 2003 to 2010 at ‘Memararsh’ consulting engineers company, Tehran, Iran. Besides working in the area of praxis, I worked as a part-time lecturer in the fields of architecture and urban planning from 2006 to 2012 in various universities in Iran. In 2011, I was awarded a German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) research scholarship as a senior researcher within the ‘Young Cities’ project of Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) research program of ‘Future Megacities’. Since 2012, I am doing my doctoral research on the topic of ‘Planners Dealing with Planning: Investigating the Individual, Institutional and Professional Role of Spatial Planning Consulting Engineering Companies in Iran’ in the field of urban and regional planning at Institute for Urban and Regional Planning (ISR) at Technical University of Berlin, Germany. Besides my doctoral research, I did several research projects as a freelance researcher with the Ministry of Roads and Urban Development of Iran during 2014-2017. Currently, I work as a senior researcher at the Institute of Vocational Education and Work studies, Technical University of Berlin, Berlin, Germany.
