Dr. Asma Naz has a Bachelor of Architecture (BUET), an M.S. in Visualization Sciences (Texas A&M University, USA) and a Ph.D. in Arts & Technology from UTD (The University of Texas at Dallas, USA). In collaboration with Duke University (USA), her Ph.D. research merged interaction design, architecture and virtual reality. Before joining BUET, Dr. Naz taught as a senior lecturer at the School of Arts, Technology and Emerging Communication, UTD. As a designer /Visualization Specialist at HKS Inc. (USA), she was involved with several high-profile sports projects, including the AT&T (Cowboys) Stadium in Texas. She is a member of LEED AP.
Dr. Naz is a Junior Research Fellow of Hanse-Wissenschaftskolleg, a reputable ‘Institute for Advanced Study’ in Germany. She continues her research in anticipation-guided new forms of intelligent interactive architecture and integration of ‘deep learning’ in association with experts from TZI, Univ. of Bremen, Germany, and antÉ–Institute for Research in Anticipatory Systems, USA. The outcome of her research has been published in internationally acclaimed journals, including:
