CV Summary

Shaharin Elham is an academic research assistant at the Department of International Urbanism at University of Stuttgart. She was born in Bangladesh but grew up in Oman, completing her Bachelor’s degree at the German University of Technology (GUtech) in Oman, studying Urban Planning and Architectural Design (UPAD).

She joined the UPAD department at GUtech after her graduation and worked as a teaching and research assistant for two years. Her bachelor thesis focused on creating a series of public squares at the city center of Al Buraimi (a border city of Oman). Furthermore she was involved in the design, construction and monitoring phase of Gutech’s Eco friendly house (featured in TRIALOG); a result of a competition which her team of students, academic staff and consultants had the opportunity to receive funds to win and construct. Thus her expertise lies in mud-construction and passive house strategies.

She finished her Master’s degree in University of Stuttgart in the program Integrated Urbanism and Sustainable design (IUSD) research on Understanding the spatial effects of migration and livelihood of Bangladeshi migrants in Oman (Gulf context). During her master studies she was part of the EZBET project based in Cairo working on the development of informal settlements.
