About

I am an active industrial designer and design academic, currently the Head of Design and Manufacturing Department at Design Quintessence Pty Ltd. I received my PhD degree in Design Computing and Cognition from The University of Sydney in 2013. I am currently a sessional lecturer at the Swinburne University of Technology, Sydney and a guest lecturer at the University of Tehran.

I am interested in design thinking, and design-lead-innovation, and the applications of computers in generative design. I enjoy teaching design and mentoring ambitious innovators and entrepreneurs to realise their ideas.

I'm in love with logic, innovation and making.
