About me


Sahar Soltani currently is a PhD student within the School of Art, Architecture and Design, University of South Australia. Sahar does research in Computational Design, Social Sustainability, and Urban Density. She is interested in the study of the interaction between the built environment and people, and how it affects the pattern of people‚Äôs daily life. Her current work is a multidisciplinary research employing architecture, urban design and computer science to explore the relation between social sustainability and urban density.
