Research Interests

    ​Cultural Landscape/vernacular architecture

    The history, form, and meaning of ordinary built environments, particularly in Iran. This work bridges cultural geography, historical geography, urban geography, and some aspects of physical geography, along with social and cultural history.

    I study the ways in which social groups have used space (as buildings, rooms, street grids, fields, or yards) to articulate social relations, to derive cultural meaning, and to create social change.

     Landscape Aesthetics Assessment

    How landscape aesthetics can influence and direct landscape change, while developing innovative methodologies of how landscape visualisation and modelling can be used to explore human reaction to these changes.
