Master of Architecture_UCLA
Bachelor of Architecture_Tongji University

With more than 6 years of education and 3 years of internship, I have grasped the principles of my major subject area and gained practical skills. In particular, I have a great interest in parametric design and digital fabrication. I’m proficient in the use of Grasshopper, Rhino and Maya.

I am learning VR, AR, BIM, and Machine Learning to see what influence those things can make on the architectural design process and construction.
