I have graduated from Edinburgh University in 2017 with an MA (Hons) Architecture degree and acquired the RIBA Part 1. I am currently working at Foster + Partners in London.

During my undergraduate studies, I developed an interest in large-scale buildings, which I pursued in my third year design project and my final year dissertation, exploring their intersection with complex environmental systems forming an insight into our energy future. Both in my design work and in my dissertation I explored an alternative mode of energy production. Through design research and innovation, how it can emerge as a new building typology and a symbiotic closed-loop system in urban settings. Professionally, I’ve had work experience in Tokyo with Hiroshi Nakamura & NAP Architects. Their discipline, commitment and design thinking shaped my approach towards architecture. Based on respect and trust, their practice is deeply rooted in traditions, yet the outcome is outstandingly contemporary, advanced and unique. This experience taught me to constantly be able to shift my focus between the immaculate detail and the grander scheme. I worked as  a design collaborator and writer for the Volume64 Platform, a community of recent graduates and architecture students from the AA, Bartlett and Edinburgh University testing architectural ideas, challenging architectural/societal norms within the confines of a cube measuring 4x4x4 meters.
