• presently, I have lived in India since August 2006. I study Ph.D programme in Design. Title of my thesis is “A Comparative Study of Calligraphy between Iran and the Mughal period of India”. My proposed research will cover all aspects and dimensions of art and calligraphy in the Mughal period in Persia and Hindustan. It will be an attempt to make a concept of visual structure, visual interest, and refinement of visual representations. In other words, it tries to translate what we see in the artwork of Islamic calligraphy into written words.
