Biayna Bogosian’s academic and professional background extends in the fields of architecture, environmental design, computational design, data science, spatial science, and interactive media design. Biayna’s interdisciplinary research has also allowed her to understand innovation in design and technology within a broader environmental context and explore data-driven and citizen-centric approaches to improve the built environment.

Biayna is a doctoral candidate in the Interdisciplinary Media Arts and Practice (iMAP) program at the University of Southern California (USC). She hold a Master of Science in Advanced Architectural Design from Columbia University and a Bachelor of Architecture and Urban Design from Woodbury University. Biayna’s Ph.D. research focuses on the development of interactive and immersive information visualization media for environmental citizen-science initiatives. For her dissertation, Biayna specifically focused on researching the socio-spatial dynamics of air-quality monitoring and visualization using readily available sensors and devices.

Since 2011, Biayna has taught digital media and architectural design courses at Columbia University Graduate School of Architecture Planning and Preservation, USC School of Architecture, Woodbury University, Tongji University, and American University in Armenia.

Biayna is the principal of Los Angeles-based studioSomewhere Something that works at the intersection of architecture, urban design, interaction design, and digital fabrication, with the aim to change the way we perceive and construct our cities.
