Is an architect, teacher assistant and researcher at the International University for Technology and Natural Sciences (ETH Zurich), Switzerland as well as at the Alexandria University, Egypt. Zaghloul’s research interest focuses on Generative Design systems, whereby designs are generated using mathematical algorithms. In this context, he took part of “A new kind of science” Summer School at the Wolfram Science School in Boston in 2012, tutored by Professor Stephen Wolfram, the global pioneer on knowledge-based programming.
One of Zaghloul’s most noticeable achievements in this field to date is the development of “Mantis”, a software tool which allows interaction between “Grasshopper”, the world’s leading graphical algorithm editor, and Wolfram’s “Mathematica” computational software program. Zaghloul curated and contributed to multiple research workshops at some of the world’s most prestigious research institutions, including the Vienna University of Technology, TU Wien (TUW), and the Advances in Architectural Geometry (AAG) symposium, London.
