He has over 15 years of architecture, sustainability and urban design experience in
professional practice and higher education.
Mehrdad’s understanding of sustainable architecture developed in the rich region of Persia

and environmental design fields, Mehrdad offers consultation and advice to a range of air
quality and environmental design related projects, both in the private and public sector. He
is a member of IAQM, IES, and Scientific Committee Member of PLEA (Passive Low Energy
Architecture). His work is regularly presented at conferences and symposia, including

Foundation was awarded Winner of the Public Vote.
Mehrdad’s doctoral studies at the University of Westminster focuses on the impact of dense
urban form on microclimate and concentration of air pollution at pedestrian level. The results
of his studies will suggest the most favourable urban form capable of mitigating air pollution
concentration in urban areas and further reduce its adverse impacts on human health.
