STATEMENT

As an architect and a car designer, I am interested in considering the future of personal and inclusive mobility. I like developing new concepts whilst also identifying new design methodologies. Research, observation and future scenarios fascinate me to produce new design narratives and new vehicle typologies. Furthermore on my path, I like to develop an awareness that better interprets vehicle design including production, sustainability, technology, materials, aerodynamics, ergonomics and environmental impact together with aesthetic principles.

As a central stage, methodology is the understanding of vehicle design among social, personal and technological environments and addressing the broader alternatives for future mobility. As a lecturer, I like to improve my abilities in studio teaching that supports design development from research to initial design concepts and refined design solutions while thinking on vehicle design and architecture innovation.

In the future, I like to offer people opportunities for setting the creative and intellectual direction of the vehicle design that moves into a new and exciting era. I believe, an academic structure that is designed to give more focus to the fundemental future aspects will support my development through teaching, practice and research.

In my studies, I focus on system design, human-machine interactions, vehicle typologies and new production models to explore personal and inclusive mobility within urban environments. During the process, design takes the centre of the debate to understand the constraints of developed project and to improve its context to provide innovative vehicle solutions and new forms of living.

My academic workload divided into three main areas; teaching, observation and research. Teaching is the most important and will be the principle activity to lead briefs and tutor projects on a regular basis, co-ordinate the activities of the student group and create a motivating environment for the students.

I like to have an active international research profile and professional practice, experience of teaching at postgraduate level. I hope my studies would provide an understanding of the broader contextual issues relevant to car design and architecture through publications, exhibition and application of knowledge in my specialised disciplines.

The while, my ambition is to work as a multidisciplinary professional specialising in conceptual & production based projects and generating ideas among the intellectual and theoretical context of the subject. However, I would like to be considered as simple, modern and unconventional professional who loves expressing ideas by integrating any type of creative processes as of inspirations. I have been developing my ability and constantly strive to improve.
