March 14 | 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

Programming Shape-change

Integrative Computational Design of Materials, Mesostructures, and Motion Mechanisms for 4D-Printing

PhD Dissertation online presentation by Yasaman Tahouni

The talk is part of a joint online event, Thursday, March 14, 2024, 5:30 pm CET

  • 5:30 pm Material Programming for 4D-Printing – Tiffany Cheng
  • 6:00 pm Programming Shape-change  – Yasaman Tahouni
  • 6:30 pm Joint Discussion


Yasaman Tahouni is designer, maker, and a computer scientist who works as a Computational Designer Samsung Electronics. She holds dual master’s degrees in Design and Computation and in Computer Science and Electrical Engineering from Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). Previously, she received her Bachelor of Architecture from University of Tehran, Iran. Yasaman’s research lies at the intersection of Computational Design, Digital Fabrication, and Human-Computer Interaction, and she seeks to find novel ways to bridge computation and materiality.

Prior to joining Samsung, Yasaman was a research associate at ICD, where she conducted research on 4D-printing of bio-based materials, for which she developed design and fabrication platforms for creating programmable and shape-changing material systems. Previously, Yasaman worked as a researcher at MIT Design Lab, where she led interdisciplinary research in the fields of design, manufacturing technologies and interactive systems to create intelligent everyday-used products. In addition to research, she has given lectures and co-taught several courses and workshops with focus on computational design, digital fabrication, and physical computing
