I am second year M.Arch student in North Carolina State University, USA. I have my Bachelor of Architecture from Shahid Beheshti University, Iran. Architecture has been interesting to me since childhood. Art is what human beings are all related to and creation is a ability of humans with which they can change the appearance of the world around them. Architecture is the mark of the time on space. Architects can speak through their work.

Technology integrated with the art of architecture is what has sorrounded us in this era.

I love to design and am eagr to learn different design processes and different tools, to enhance my design outcome based on our life of today. In that regard, I have learned many energy simulation software such as EnergyPlus, OpenStudio, DesignBuilder, Diva for Rhino and I am eager to use them in my design process to enhance the evidence-based design solutions.

Currently, I am doing my final project on daylighting design for a highrise building in San Francisco, with the concentration on maximizing the view and psychological effects of daylight in the spaces, in order to increase the productivity of work.
