About 

I am a designer, researcher, and teacher, currently pursuing a Ph.D. in Architecture at the University of California, Los Angeles. My research explores the intersection of historic preservation and urban redevelopment, including housing and transportation planning and policy, land-use and environmental law. I hold a Master in Design Studies [MDes] with a concentration in Critical Conservation from the Harvard Graduate School of Design and a Bachelor of Architecture [B.Arch.] from Rice University.
