I'm a second-year graduate student in Architecture, from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. I expect to obtain my master degree on May 15th, 2017, and currently looking for a junior architect job.

During my seven-year architectural study life, I studied hard and learned a lot, I also have valuable experience both in practical jobs and research area. I won AIA Chicago student awards 3rd place, Earl Prize 2nd Place, and other nominations; I also helped my professor published a paper to Plea 2017 two weeks ago. All the things above I believe are evidence of my efforts and also a reflection of my professional level. You may know more about my projects through this link,

I always have great passion in architecture and try to offer better solutions for social problems through architectural method. Please let me you if you have any interest in me.

1.As a team member, I worked in a multi-family residential renovation project.
2. I helped other teams with some drawings and renderings, including a competition.

3. I did a sketch on site for an approval of a restaurant project and helped my partner to turn that drawing into a digital version, then we got the approval in a week.

4. I made a presentation to my office after I won Chicago award this summer, so I showed my project to my colleagues and then we changed our ideas, which I think will help all of us to learn more.
