Brijhette Farmer recently completed her final year of graduate school at the State University of New York at Buffalo in the Department of Architecture. She completed her thesis, which focuses on the intersection of product design, poverty, and transitional natural disaster housing, in June 2014. She is currently seeking employment and internship opportunities in the fields of architecture and structural engineering. Other areas of interest include graphic design, data visualization, and computer programming.
Ms. Farmer dreams of working and researching to combine the necessity of sound engineering with the opportunities of architectural design to help alleviate poverty and advance natural disaster mitigation in cities in the US and countries around the globe.
