In my recent years of architectural studies & practice, I have been focused on exploring and understanding various environmental, cultural & technological factors, that impact the quality of spaces in my design. I work hard in order to achieve a blend of creative & practical approaches while designing by utilizing computation as a tool for its improvement and verification.”


Carnegie Mellon University School of Architecture, Pittsburgh, PA, US, Graduate Teaching Assistant (Studio_Dana Cupkova)

• Reinforce student's understanding of Environmental Performance Simulations presented by Professors in class with one-on-one meetings or group discussions.
• Help supervise students and solve doubts during a class as requested.
• Assist students in their Studio work by showing ways to incorporate the right Environmental Performance Simulations for their design and help them in understanding the result's to provide as verification or act upon it for further improvement.

Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates (KPF), New York, NY, US, Environmental Performance Designer/ Analyst (Intern)

• Assisted project teams in design development for incorporating
creative and sustainable solutions to accomplish the set energy
performance goals while reducing the environmental impact.
• Developed an in-house Energy Modeling Workflow with visualization
capabilities and testing its accuracy.
• Created an Energy Modeling Library in compliance with ASHRAE
Standards & DOE Reference Buildings for Office, Residential, Retail
and Hotel projects. Features : Operation Schedules for Equipments,
Lighting, Occupancy, HVAC, etc | Opaque/ Glazing Constructions
categorized by Climate Zones | Zone Conditioning/ Loads.
