About 

I am a recent graduate in Masters of Architecture from University at Buffalo currently working as an Intern at Atelier Manferdini in Los Angeles, California. I am current seeking a full-time position as a designer in an Architectural firm that suits my skill set. 

I was a part of Situated Technologies research group that had contributed to my advanced skills in parametric and computational designing. During my internships, I was involved in designing small-scale projects such as residences and drafting working details of a residential complex that used precast concrete structure, multi-usage office buildings and a few other innovative projects.

Furthermore, I had participated in various workshops, one had given me hands on experience on low-cost building techniques of Laurie Baker. I was also an active member in teams that worked for various design competitions with diverse topics like restoration, product design, sustainability etc. among which a few were shortlisted. I also contributed to the development and organizing of an exhibition for Prof.Jin Young Song that was titled ‘Facade as’, a topic that investigated categorization of facades based on their role. These had improved my architectural, creative and teamwork skills during my academics.
