Amin is an architect, educator, and currently, a Research Associate working on the FNR-BMEL Timber Structure Interface .TSI research project described as the development of a data interface for the automated structural analysis of the novel, digitally prefabricated timber structures with wood-wood connections, federally-funded by The Agency for Renewable Resources e. V. and a Lecturer at the Augsburg Technical University of Applied Sciences in Germany. Previously, he had varied research and/or teaching duties at the Chalmers University of Technology in Sweden, Bremen University of Applied Sciences, Technical University of Kaiserslautern, University of Mazandaran, and Politecnico Di Milano. He has taught design studios, seminars, and CAD-CAM workshops at different universities and conferences like ACADIA 2022 at University of Pennsylvania, USA, DigitalFUTURES, and CAADRIA 2023, and held lectures internationally. His work has been published and presented at different conferences including IASS, eCAADe, DigitalFUTURES, The Future of Construction Symposium at ETH Zurich, International Mass Timber Conference, FNR, LIGNA and BAU, among others. Amin has been the curator of the “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 from the ICD, TU Delft, Columbia GSAPP, Rhode Island School of Design, California College of the Art, Cooper Union, Washington State University, SUTD, and Ohio State University. His current research focuses on the development of the sustainable construction systems for the rapid assembly and disassembly of the digitally-prefabricated multi-usable lightweight gridshells. 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.
