The AMP Lab welcomes Hussein Keshani and his research team

By Karis Shearer (Director)


Our AMP Lab community is delighted to welcome our 5th Principal Investigator Dr. Hussein Keshani and his team to the lab.  An original collaborator on the lab’s CFI, Hussein leads a number of digital humanities projects under the umbrella of the Digital Art History Collective. He brings 3 graduate research assistants to the AMP Lab: Yasaman Lotfizadeh, Ahlam Bavi, and Sepideh Saffari have quickly become integral members of our community and are contributing to the Aga Khan Garden Project and the Aga Khan Museum Project. Yasaman, Ahlam, and Sepideh are all pursuing graduate degrees in the Digital Arts & Humanities IGS Theme and bring strong backgrounds in graphic design, architecture, animation, and digital Art History to the team.

As a scholar and a teacher, Hussein crosses multiple disciplines including history, religious and gender studies, digital art history/humanities, world literature, interpretation and art and architectural history. His diverse research practices include archival and museum research, fieldwork at architectural sites and botanic gardens, coding, and analytical renderings of architectural drawings and digital models. We’re thrilled to have him and his research team joining us — stay tuned for updates in the coming weeks!
