Milad is a self-motivated and contributing designer and researcher. He holds BSc. In Architectural Engineering from Shahid Beheshti University, school of architecture in Tehran, Iran, and Master of Architecture from Pratt Institute school of architecture in New York, the U.S.A. where he graduated with Sidney Katz award for design excellence in 2015. During 2017-2021, Milad conducted his PhD at the Architectural Association PhD in Design Programme, titled ‘Homeostatic Urban Morphologies: An Evolutionary Model to Generate Urban Morphologies With Embedded Homeostatic Behaviours’. Milad has been working and collaborating with different architecture and design studios in Tehran, New York, Washington, Shanghai, London and Istanbul as Design Technology Specialist. He was the project lead at Contemporary Architecture Practice (CAP) - Ali Rahim and Hina Jamelle where he has led several different architectural projects across a range of scales from 2015 to 2016. Alongside practicing architecture, he has been a fellow researcher in different computer-aided design research projects which were culminated in published papers in peer-reviewed journals and conferences, posters and digitally fabricated installations. Milad has been actively teaching algorithmic thinking and computational strategies since 2010 in the form of workshops and highly specialised classes. He was a teaching assistant at Pratt Institute for advanced computational courses and design studios. Milad is the Studio Master at Emergent Technologies and Design post-graduate program at the Architectural Association. Among many professional and academic activities, He is the Co-Founder of ‘Wallacei’, an evolutionary multi-objective optimization engine with an embedded analytic engine and machine learning algorithms that allows users to have full control over their optimization problems in Grasshopper 3D. Milad’s research interest is the application of biological principles of intelligence in architecture and urban design through computational processes.
