I am a Lecturer in Intelligent Mobility at the Centre for Transport Studies (CTS) within the Department of Civil, Environmental and Geomatic Engineering (CEGE) in the Faculty of Engineering at University College London. I am the research leader of the Intelligent Mobility Group and Director of IM Lab at UCL (IM @UCL). I am interested in the complexity of interaction and how intuitive, intelligent, human-centric and personalised control systems can influence it. Over the last 10 years, my research focus has been on Intelligent Mobility, with an emphasis on exploring driver and pedestrian interaction with semi- and fully-autonomous vehicles in different contexts (e.g., shared spaces, CAVs), an area of application that significantly benefits from Robotics and AI.
I received a Bachelor of Science (BSc) in Civil Engineering from the University of Science and Culture (Iran) in 2008. I completed my Master of Science (MSc) in Advanced Architectural Studies at the Bartlett School of Architecture (University College London) in 2009. My PhD research at Imperial College London focused on a new microscopic model for the simulation of shared space schemes. From 2013 to 2016, I was a Research Associate in the Centre for System Engineering and Innovation / Port Operations Research and Technology Centre and Lloyd’s Register Foundation Transport Risk Management Centre at Imperial College London. From 2016 to 2017, I was a Lecturer in Intelligent Mobility in the Transport Research Group (TRG) at the University of Southampton.
