I am currently an Urban Planning Master's Candidate at the Harvard Graduate School of Design. I have a professional background in architecture with a B.S. Architecture degree from the NJIT Hillier College of Architecture and Design. My interests in architecture encompass, yet extend beyond buildings; I am as equally excited about urban and infrastructure planning, as well as architectural research and criticism.
