Personal profile

Quote

“Soon our houses and streets become adaptive living organisms that “care” for us, being socially intelligent environments that understand us and empathize with us.”

Research profile

As the principal investigator and leader of the research program ‘Empathic Environment’, an ongoing interdisciplinary study into technological and social aspects of smart healthy neighborhoods, Mohammadi aims to develop an evidence-based framework for embedding emerging technologies (such as domotics, AI, robotics and IoT) into architectural concepts and systems. Therefore, it is essential to create a delicate balance between architecture, technology and the actual needs and preferences of (end) users. By implementing these (design) principals and methods in several Living Labs throughout the Netherlands, her chair aims to explore the next generation smart homes, and to examine the impact of these interventions on the socio-spatial context and real life of users. This new cross-disciplinary field requires systematic research and the development of new methodologies to empirically evaluate emerging housing typologies and their impact on the health, wellbeing and social engagement of users. To facilitate these advances 17 PhD and PDEng researchers are currently conducting research on this subject. 

 

To arrive at an evidence-based framework, testing in a real environment with stakeholders is indispensable. The Empathic living labs are real life demonstrators in which partners from research, industry and practice (e.g. Dutch housing and care organizations) collaborate. By integration and implementation of the developed (design) principles and methodologies in 10 Living Labs throughout the Netherlands, this chair aims to empirically evaluate emerging housing typologies and their impact on the health, wellbeing and social engagement of users.


For her research, she received grants from different organizations, e.g. Interreg Europe programme (IV), Netherlands Organization for Scientific Research (NWO), Netherlands Organization for Health Research and Development (ZonMW), and Province of North Brabant.
