Why did you choose temporary works?

I was introduced to engineering through my father who is also a structural engineer and runs a highway engineering company in Iran. Growing up, I have always been involved in engineering works on sites or in the office. I enjoyed the challenging environment and being part of a creating team. That is the main reason I perused this subject.

What is fascinating about temporary work is that, it could be required in every type of structure, from buildings to bridges and tunnels, etc. I was always interested to learn more about temporary work and how it is used in different projects.

What are your hobbies and interests?

Sports (badminton, skiing and running)

Travelling the world

Learning languages

What is one interesting fact about yourself?

Since I have always loved everything about Japan, I took some time off my PhD study and moved to Japan for a few months studying Japanese and travelling the country. It was one of the greatest adventures of my life.
