Hoda Moustapha completed her PhD in Computational design. Her dissertation "Architectural Explorations: A Formal Representation for Generation and Transformation of Design Geometry", is about Computational framework for Design Exploration.
The framework, named ICE (Interactive Configuration Exploration) consists of (i)a formal notation for describing geometrical configurations by means of generative and relational structures and (ii) a 3D modeling system for exploring geometrical configurations transforming their structure.
Hoda is now working in the Computer Science Department on Project Olympus with Prof Lenore Blum. www.olympus.cs.cmu.edu
Hoda worked in the Institute of Complex Engineering Systems on the co-construction project with Professor Susan Finger.
Miscellanous background information:
Hoda speaks three languages: English, French and Arabic.
