Hi, I’m Fereshteh Shahmiri;

a PhD student in Computer Science at Georgia Institute of Technology and specializing in Human-Computer Interaction. Prior my PhD, I got my MS in Computation Design from Carnegie Mellon University.  I have work experiences in hardware/software and design companies like Tactual Labs Co., Autodesk (Applied Research Lab) , Bentley Systems (GenerativeComponents Team) and Gensler.

Please feel free to check out my CV and portfolio.

And contact me if you believe we have overlaps in our research interests.
