I have gained extensive work experience in the field of architecture and design over the past years. Currently, I am serving as a Lecturer at Prince Mohammad bin Fahd University, where I teach various subjects in interior design, architecture, and graphic design. In this role, I have covered diverse areas such as healthcare, hospitality, retail, and residential projects. I am proficient in construction process documents, detailed drawings, 2D and 3D modeling, BIM, and more. Additionally, I have taken on leadership responsibilities, advising and supervising clubs at the university. Prior to my current position, I worked as an Architect, Owner, and Founder at AAJ Architects, where I designed and renovated residential, commercial, and retail projects. I consulted with clients to understand their functional and spatial requirements and devised overall strategies for documentation and building information models. I also have experience as a Teacher Assistant at Woodbury University, assisting in teaching and research, and as an Interior Designer at ASGT Group and Gushat Engineering, leading full project design processes and supervising contractors and suppliers. These varied experiences have equipped me with a comprehensive skill set and a deep understanding of the industry.

  • Sustainable Architecture: I am passionate about exploring sustainable design strategies and technologies that promote energy efficiency, reduce environmental impact, and create healthier and more resilient built environments. This includes investigating sustainable materials, passive design techniques, renewable energy integration, and sustainable urban planning principles.
  • Urban Design and Planning: I am interested in the study of urban form, spatial organization, and the impact of urban planning on communities. This includes research on mixed-use development, transit-oriented design, urban regeneration, placemaking, and creating vibrant and inclusive public spaces.
  • Building Information Modeling (BIM): I am intrigued by the potential of BIM technology and its application in architectural design, construction, and facility management. My research explores the utilization of BIM for improved project coordination, clash detection, energy performance analysis, and lifecycle management of buildings.
  • Digital Design and Fabrication: I am fascinated by the integration of digital tools and fabrication techniques in architectural design. This includes research on parametric design, digital modeling, robotic fabrication, 3D printing, and exploring how these technologies can enhance the design process and construction methods.
