I am a student of Master of Building Science at the University of Southern California. Prior to this, I have earned my Bachelor of Architecture (B.Arch) degree in 2010. I believe that the difference between good work and great work is due to the element of passion present in great work, and passion is what sets me apart from my peers. My affinity towards exploring and learning has led me to participate in many, national and international competitions and I have proved my excellence in each one of them.
I believe in building for a sustainable future. My area of focus is thermal performance of buildings and green buildings in general. I want to be a part of an organization with a strong commitment towards sustainability and I intend to maintain and cultivate a high standard of excellence.
