Curriculum Vitae (CV)
My research interest lies in the multifaceted realm of design psychology, with a particular emphasis on unraveling the profound impact of architectural design on human perception, behavior, and overall well-being. I am fascinated by the intricate interplay between spatial arrangements, sensory stimuli, and the human psyche, and I believe that a deeper understanding of these interactions can lead to the creation of more human-centric and mentally nurturing architectural designs.
My journey into this field stems from a profound conviction that architecture, as an art form that shapes our lived experiences, has immense power to influence our physical and mental health. I am driven by the pursuit of knowledge that can inform the design of spaces that foster positive emotions, promote cognitive function, and enhance overall well-being.
My research seeks to explore the intricate mechanisms by which architectural design influences human perception, behavior, and mental health. I aim to identify the key psychological factors that contribute to a sense of comfort, safety, and well-being within architectural spaces. Additionally, I am interested in investigating the potential of architecture to address specific mental health challenges, such as anxiety, stress, and social isolation.
By elucidating the profound impact of architectural design on human psychology, I hope to contribute to the creation of more humane and mentally supportive environments that promote holistic well-being for individuals and communities.
