Research and Professional Interests
I am enthusiastic about the subject of child-friendly cities and inclusive playgrounds. The focus of my Ph.D. project is on playgrounds for children with disabilities. In my previous research projects, I surveyed to investigate individuals' perceptions of various aspects of the built environment. My background has been in Architecture, and I am experienced in biophilic architectural design for children. I am also interested in sustainable transportation in cities, especially active transportation (Walking and Cycling), and the different ways to improve this phenomenon in city campuses.
