About 

Transitioning from an intern to a junior architect and subsequently to a project architect over five years at Studio Next (New Delhi) has helped me learn about all the stages of building design and execution. In the concluding years of my previous professional employment, I led a team on projects of multiple scales. This experience accentuated my decision-making abilities and empowered me to work with minimal directives. Frequent/first-hand interactions with government contractors at the CIPET institute regarding schedules, specifications, and timeline helped me manage the workload and develop contingencies. The client appreciated our adherence to the deadlines without compromising on the design intent.  

 
Starting from a manual studio in 2008, I am now not only flexible to work on different digital environments, but I am proficient in multiple industry-standard software platforms like Revit, Rhino, Sketchup, Adobe, Autocad, etc. As a Teaching Assistant for Architectural Graphics, my comfort to explore and use new software and hardware platforms has been pivotal in restructuring the curriculum during the pandemic. We have managed to engage the students in a step-by-step tutorial-oriented online studio. Simultaneously, my duties as a Lab Technician at the Digi-fab Lab at the University fostered an improved understanding of building details and fabrication.

Being involved in a number of projects, I had the opportunity of being a part of three hospital design projects and worked closely with hospital planners and consultants. In the last 2 years, I was entrusted with leading the project for an outpatient hospital design which is scheduled to be completed in 2020. Having attended a number of the client, consultant, and contractor meetings, I was tasked with mediating the design intent to the involved parties. Working directly with the principal architect who himself had a design and construction background of over two decades was an enriching experience and I hope to bring my learnings as an employee at
