I have been involved with teaching Architectural History and Theory to undergraduate and postgraduate students since 2006. My main areas of interest include 19th and 20th century history and theory with special focus on intellectual networks concerning perception of architectural materials, including branches of historicism, rationalism, and phenomenology.
Courses I coordinate: History Theory I (1st Year core); Construction I (1st Year core); Design Studio IV (2nd Year core) ; Critical Historical Practices (M.Arch)
Other courses I teach: History Theory II (2nd Year core); Masters Seminar A & B (Masters Research Methods); Colonial and Contemporary Issues in Asian Architecture (Elective); Islamic Architecture and Gardens (Elective).
