Abdulmalik Abdulmawla

Research & Teaching Assistant

Abdulmalik is a Research & Teaching Assistant at the Chair of Informatics in Architecture (InfAR)at the Bauhaus-University Weimar in Germany. He graduated in architecture and urban planning in 2013 at Dessau International Architecture Graduate School (DIA), Germany. Since 2016, he works at the Bauhaus University Weimar. His main research interest is computational analysis and simulation of urban systems with a focus on the patterns of economic activities in the local urban settings of the city. He was also the Project Coordinator of Discovering Cities project in Amman Jordan in 2018; a DAAD project with the Chair of Social Science Urban Research in the Bauhaus University and The German Jordanian University in Amman, Jordan. Abdulmalik has also taught at the Arab Academy for Science, Technology & Maritime Transport, Cairo Egypt, for 2 years (2014-2016). And he has 4 years of Design and Project Management experience in the Middle East (Egypt and UAE) between 2007-2011.
