About 

Born in a small town in Nagaur, India, raised in Dubai and currentlyliving in London. I have a desire to design spaces that is socially and culturally driven. I want to use my compuational skills and design sense to work in an environment that designs
spaces that communicate and interact with people.

To brief, I recently finished my post-graduation in Architecture and Urbanism from the AA School DRL under Patrik Schumacher, ZHA Principal and studio mentor Archigram's founding member, David Greene. The DRL uses design experimentation with advanced methods in computation, and manufacturing, and research that interrogates architecture and urbanism from the city-scale to the nano-scale. My research project with my teammates was addressed to the 'future of work environments' was recognized as the 'DRL distinction project' for the final jury.

Before, I was working as an architect in Dubai for two years. In the year 2016, I completed my Bachelor’s in Architecture and Design from the American University in Dubai and was awarded the 'Best Project award in class' for the senior showcase.


I am enthusiastic, self-motivated and have an analytical proactiveapproach to problem-solving. I believe in collaborative work, yet I am self-directed and can achieve tasks efficiently.
