I have gained my bachelor’s degree in Civil Engineering from the University of Tehran. I continued my studies in the master of Construction Management and Engineering at the Technical University of Eindhoven (TU/e), with the master thesis subject that aimed to improve 3D concrete printing process. After working for about one year and a half as a junior asset manager at the consultancy firm Arcadis, my interest to conduct research got me back to university.
I started my PhD in April 2018 in the project Responsible Infrastructure for Responsive Institutions (RITRI), a collaboration with knowledge institute NGInfra and Rijksuniversiteit Groningen (RUG). In UT, we aim to identify and model infrastructure interdependencies, in order to support strategic decision-makers in infrastructure agencies to detect opportunities for joint investment and coordination.
