About me

I joined UWE in January 2023 as a lecturer in Urban Planning. Prior to joining UWE, I was a Research Associate in Planning and Housing at the Cambridge Centre for Housing and Planning Research, at the Land Economy Department of University of Cambridge. Before that post, I was a lecturer (teaching) in Urban Design and Planning at the Bartlett School of Planning, UCL for two years. 

I have a PhD in Urban Planning and an MSc in Urban Regeneration form the Bartlett School of Planning, UCL and an MA in Architecture with specialism in Urban Conservation from University of Tehran.

At UWE I’m a co-programme leader for our BSc Urban Planning programme and teach on a number of undergraduate and postgraduate modules in various programmes.
