Amin is an educator, researcher, critic, and currently, a scientific staff at the Augsburg University of Applied Sciences working on the federally funded FNR-BMEL Timber Structure Interface .TSI research project defined as the development of a data interface for the automated structural analysis of the novel, digitally prefabricated timber structures with wood-wood connections under the leadership of Prof. Dr. Christopher Robeller. Formerly, he had varied teaching or research duties at Bremen University of Applied Sciences, TU Kaiserslautern, University of Mazandaran, and Politecnico Di Milano, among others. He has taught design studios, seminars, and CAD-CAM workshops, and held lectures and presentations internationally. His work has also been presented at different events including The Future of Construction Symposium at ETH Zurich, eCAADe, IASS, and Young Series of DigitalFUTURES. Amin has been the curator of the “2019 UMZ Architecture” and “Digital Architecture and Advanced Construction” lecture series at University of Mazandaran in Iran where he moderated a number of lectures by high-profile educators and researchers form the Cooper Union, Columbia GSAPP, Rhode Island School of Design, California College of the Art, Washington State University, TU Delft, ICD, SUTD, and Ohio State University. He holds a Master of Science degree in Architecture from Politecnico Di Milano in Italy and has been the recipient of several merit-based scholarships.
