Mahsa Sadat Masalegoo

Research Assistant

Mahsa Sadat Masalegoo is a robotic manufacturer and researcher with a background in architectural design. She is currently on track to graduate with a Master of Science in Design concentrating in Robotic and Autonomous Systems (MSD-RAS) from the University of Pennsylvania. She graduated with a Master of Architecture from the University of Tehran. She also worked on one of Iran’s national projects “Karaj Main Theater Hall” as the coordinator and architectural designer.

Mahsa is currently a research assistant in the Polyhedral Structures Laboratory (PSL) and Autonomous Manufacturing Lab (AML-PENN) focusing on an alternative approach to relocatable housing through the development of a new type of Design-For-Disassembly (DFD) light-weight precast concrete tectonic that operates as a structural building envelope with integrated floor and foundations.

Her research interests consist of robotic fabrication, autonomous assembly and bio-inspired design. She also has a wide range of experience in robotic fabrication with the 6-axis robotic arm (in additive manufacturing, hot wire cutting and carbon fibre knitting techniques), digital fabrication, and computational design.
